As is typical at the edge of the planet, things change quickly. Yesterday afternoon my team got word that our flight to the field has was bumped up to the morning. had hoped for a couple more days to prep at South Pole Station before heading out, but around here you have to go when they say go. I fly out in 2 hours for the field site at AGO #2, and will be there 5 or 6 days. I will have access to the SAT phone but will not have internet access from the field.

    Keep the questions coming and I will answer them as quickly as possible, and keep an eye out for the Polar Connect Event. Details to be posted soon!

    The Geographic South Pole ... Did you know that it shifts by about 30 feet per year? South Pole Station is on nearly 2 miles of ice, and that ice moves slowly.
