Quin Abarr in Antarctica with penguins

My research has focused on X-rays from compact objects, such as black holes and neutron stars. I had the opportunity to travel to Antarctica to launch the X-ray polarimeter X-Calibur on a stratospheric balloon. This and all my experiences doing astrophysics at WashU have been made possible by support from the McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences.
