Celebration in May

Today we celebrated a holiday from this planet called Mexico, not the country. We were lucky to be visited by one of their kind. Things turned unfortunate though when margarita fueled station residents mistook a head for a piƱata. Quite an ironic anatomical coincidence. There's sure to be a complaint from the Mexican galactic ambassador now.

Three Suns

Once in a while we have to test the spare suns. Redundancy.


Ice Cream Research

One of the hottest research topics here at Pole is ice cream technology. Here are some experiments on new flavors. I think this one is Vanitro.


The Growth Chamber in Action

Now that winter is here, we've fired up the growth chamber to grow things like this strawberry donut. The record for the growth chamber is 160 pounds a week. Thats a lot of donuts. I hear they're mostly water.


The last plane has left! Winter has started!

The last 121 summer visitors left on the last plane out. It was a tight squeeze.


Volunteering at the Day Care center today

One great thing about working at the South Pole is you get many roles. Firefighter, photographer, journalist, store clerk, greenhouse planter, sushi chef, and sometimes babysitter at the Day Care Center.

Crack in the dome

Today we had to repair a crack in the dome. We can't let all the atmosphere on Earth leak out into space after all. The Martians charge us a lot of money for that gas.


Kiwi Wildlife on RnR

New Zealand is a land of beautiful features and dangerous animals. Like this, probably a man eating possum.


Beer Press

Its the only way to brew a cold one.



Got back from a Refreshing RnR trip! The mosquitos were huge.

Happy New Year!

The fireworks show was amazing.


Station supply of water

Rodwells provide the station with out supply of water. Each one takes at least 10,000 gallons of fuel to create and provides fresh water for the station for up to 7 years.


The most important valve on station

This valve controls the flow of beer to station.


Advanced technology at Pole

One thing about being at South Pole, we have some of the most advanced technology on Earth. Here is an iPhone 6 with microphone, this version was simplified further to not even include a color LCD.

We've had plug in hybrids here since 1987.

A prototype iPhone 7. Dial pads are making a comeback.

A light field camera.

Team 6 practice

Each South Pole winter-over must be part of a response team to deal with all eventualities at south pole. There's team 1, the hasty team, team 2 the fire team, team 3 the trauma team, team 4 the logistics team and my team, team 6, the assault team. Team 5 is the basketball exhibition team who will be on tour most of the winter. Since South Pole is of strategic importance and the peace of the Universe rests on the rocky marriage of Lord Calamari and the promiscuous biped crab princess, we must be ever prepared. Here were are on team 6 practicing our mortar fire.

New Elevator Panel

Today we installed a new panel in the Solar System Elevator. You just press the button to where you want to go. (Pluto's on the underside)
