The sky was not disappointing anyone last week at the Pole; it had it all—stars, Milky Way, and auroras. Work-wise it was rather quiet for IceCube’s winterovers. But they had other activities going on, including emergency response training and showcasing their LEGO creations in a blog post for LEGO fans. Apparently LEGO is popular this year at the Pole, with roughly a quarter of the winterover population identifying as LEGO enthusiasts. And in appreciation of the winterovers’ participation in their interview, the blog team designed a LEGO model “Herc” and will be sending parts and instructions to the Pole in the summer. Nice design!
