What do you do when you want to create a Remote Experience for the public but you can't send a rover? Send a human instead!

For the Highlakes 2005 expedition an "imbedded reporter" style public representative [Coppin] accompanied a NASA/SETI expedition to some of the highest lakes on Earth. Each day the imbedded representative shot video and still photos, wrote text and then transmitted all via a satellite phone too our lab in Pittsburgh where all information was posted for public review on the web and a science museum exhibit at the Adler in Chicago.
