Title: U.S. South Pole Station
Url: https://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/livingsouthpole/
Publisher: National Science Foundation (U.S.)
Description: Sometimes if you feel your working conditions are difficult, consider what it must be like to work at the National Science Foundation's Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Those hardy scientists are working year-round on the coldest, highest, driest, and windiest continent. In 2011, the Station celebrated its 100th anniversary, and this NSF website offers curious parties a look into the past and the future. The site offers six different sections, including "Science Goals," "Video Tour," and "New NSF Station." The homepage gives visitors the opportunity to view the South Pole webcam and a complete vista that shows the station in its entirety. Moving on, the "Science Goals" area features an interactive timeline of important dates in South Pole exploration and important scientific discoveries that have been part of its history. The "Video Tour" presents "Reflections From The Ice." This video offers commentary from former station construction chief Jerry Marty on living and working at the South Pole. The site is rounded out by photo galleries and information on the new NSF station.
