Week 28 at the Pole

There were two bingos last week at the Pole: (1) the game, where some improvising was required for the tiles, and (2) the exclamation, which was well warranted for IceCube’s recent multimessenger results. Most of the station joined IceCube’s winterovers to watch the press conference announcement in the galley. The winterovers also trekked out to the ICL last week and captured a more artsy image of the building, looking almost as if it’s resting on a choppy sea. The bottom image shows the entrance to the South Pole’s climbing wall, which currently requires a bit of climbing just to get in.
