CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. -- A NASA scientist spoke to freshmen at Cliffside Park High School about his trips to Antartica studying meteorites, reports northjersey.com.

North Jersey native Dr. Dean Eppler has been working at the Johnson Space Center in Houston since 1990 and talked about the interesting aspects of traveling and to and working in Antartica, reports northjersey.com.

Temperatures in Antartica go as low as 60 degrees below zero forcing scientists to eat 7,500 to 10,000 calories a day, reports northjersey.com.

Eppler said it's the only continent not owned by a country and is an international zone for research, reports northjersey.com.
