Why haven't I heard this before?

I just started watching an episode of Nova from last March entitled "Last Extinction" and I came across an interesting fact - the person who has traversed more of the Antarctic ice sheet than anyone else in the world is Paul Andrew Mayewski, the Director & Professor of the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine in Orono.


This guy's seen more of Antarctica than anyone else.

In the world.

And he's in Maine.

Why doesn't everyone in Maine know this?

I say we need a "Famous Mainers" television show, or newspaper insert, or website. Are we too modest? Why don't we all know this?

C'mon, this is cool stuff!
