It is so nice to get a glimpse of the South Pole Station! Thanks! I'm glad it isn't all work and no play. Seeing this station makes me think that we have already learned a good bit on how to set up a livable environment in a remote location, and maybe we will have one like this on Mars! Do you have any thoughts on that?

Wow... great stuff, Kate! Keep it coming.
Thanks, Ric. And right back at ya! I love reading about McMurdo because I was only there for a very short, very tiring day :)
Hi Stacy! Thanks for following!
We really have learned an incredible amount about living in remote locations. And Antarctica is truly other-worldy. It's so surreal here and so different from 'home'! I did hear that NASA has (is?) using Antarctica as staging for a mission to Mars. I'm not sure the exact same station design could be used there, but it is very interesting to think about what aspect might be transferable, right down to what a human needs to mentally survive prolonged periods of being alone!
I concur with what other readers have said: your journals are first class.
And the videos clips are simply amazing. I absolutely enjoyed them.
Thanks so much, Armando! Glad you're enjoying them!
