What does it take to run a research station on the least habitable continent, thousands of miles from civilization? For those interested in Antarctica (and McMurdo Station) these are really nice interactive 360 degree and 3-D (for VR) web pages. To get the really cool 3-D experience, you will want to use VR goggles. As a note of interest Elaine Hood - ASC Communications/Antarctic Logistics provider (to the 2018 Antarctic PolarTREC teachers) is on location in McMurdo and is listed in the credits as a narrator.
