Week 39 at the Pole
Just because the sun is now up, doesn’t mean you can see everything clearly. Check out the poor visibility in this image of a flag line just outside the station, disappearing into whiteness. The 40-knot storm made outdoor work impossible and therefore restricted. But a storm is temporary, sooner or later to end, and afterward Martin found the IceCube Lab standing out crisp and clear in the landscape. The week ended with a traditional Oktoberfest celebration. The German-speaking crew on station prepared traditional foods, including some nice-sized pretzels.
