This could be IceCube winterover Marc’s last weather balloon launch at the South Pole. And what a nice image, with a sun halo in the sky as a backdrop. Marc has helped launch quite a few balloons during his time at the Pole, but that time is now dwindling, for both him and fellow IceCube winterover, Hrvoje, seen below taking in the fresh (cold!) air in an outdoor hammock. They are wrapping things up and getting ready to train their replacements, who could be arriving any day now—although the vagaries of Antarctic travel mean one must always be ready for delays. In the meantime, the winterovers were also busy taking care of some detector issues, none that weren’t quickly resolved. And, even though IceCube personnel weren’t on it, another plane arrived last week, bringing new people to the Pole and taking away other winterovers who have already finished their assignments.
