For the 55th consecutive year, millions of people all over the world over will be able to keep tabs on Santa as he treks around the globe delivering presents to good girls and boys. And scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory are again part of the effort! Los Alamos trackers will use state-of-the-art technology to mark the course taken by Old St. Nick and his reindeer; visit http://santa.lanl.gov beginning at 6 a.m. Dec. 24 to see his journey.
“We expect Santa to arrive in Northern New Mexico around midnight, Mountain Standard Time, on Christmas Eve,” said scientist Diane Roussel-Dupré of the Lab’s Space Data Systems group.
Los Alamos is supporting Santa trackers at North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), who’ve been following Santa on his Christmas journey since 1955.
The program, which has become an annual favorite for kids big and small, hit the Internet in 1998.
