Been wondering what the social-media-elusive Lorde has been up to lately? Turns out that she has been busy in Antarctica, visiting the PolarTREC laboratory at Scott's Discovery Hutt, Ross Island, near the McMurdo Science Station.
American science teacher Kevin Dickerson wrote in a PolarTREC journal entry: "Today was a no-fly day so we had some extra lab time. That turned out to be an okay thing because we were paid a visit at our lab by New Zealand's famous singer-songwriter Lorde. She was super interested in our work. She took a look at the animals we are studying under the microscope and was very excited with what she saw. She visited with us until finally, those who were escorting her around said she was late for another stop she needed to make. She stayed and chatted even longer after that. The environment is lucky to have famous people like her taking an interest in getting the real facts, the science, of what is really happening to our Earth. She was so interested as Dr. Adams expressed his concern to get this science right. What is being done here, by this LTER Project, could have implications that could lead to the Earth's future conditions. Lorde seemed sincerely interested in this work."
