postcards from the Antarctic

Stumbled across an interesting article, with cool photos, at Discover while doing research on dew, frost, winter observing. Very interesting structures they use at the British Halley Research Station in Antarctica. The structures are modular. The legs are hydraulic to overcome snow accumulation. The legs are also fitted to skis. Looks like a very neat spot...

OK. I admit it. In my head, the soundtrack started to play. I couldn't help it. Outpost 31... John Carpenter's The Thing. Sorry. Sorry.
