  • Virtual Tour - South Pole
    winter the winter over crew live and eat in the dome and in the summer many more people come down and live in the summer camp Most of the action in any season takes place in the dome All of CARA s scientific instruments are housed in the CARA buildings One of the several non CARA related science experiments at the Pole is the Atmospheric Research Observatory Click on things in this image to learn more about the region This graphic is based on the blueprint of the pole but is NOT to scale Approximately though the distance between the Pole and the CARA buildings is 0 5 km 1800 feet We have on line an aerial view of the South Pole Station 758k taken in 1983 There is also a more managable 167k version which works just as well on most screens The dome is the big shiny object near the middle of this image and the Jamesway tents are on the right The ceremonial South Pole is on the lower left The arches straight line tangent to the dome are also visible here but since this picture was taken they have been completely buried by blowing snow The

  • Virtual Tour - Skiway
    support beginning with the 1999 2000 field season Most of the pictures you see on the Virtual Tour date from before 1998 so most of the aircraft pictured are Navy for more recent photos see our page on the NYANG Here s a close up of the skis on the LC130 while we were still in New Zealand No planes fly into the South Pole during the austral winter from about 15 February to about 25 October The people who live here in the winter are totally isolated except for radio and electronic communications There are many flights in and out of Pole in the summer between October and February During the South Pole Modernization many more flights than usual for a normal summer season will be scheduled to bring in construction materials The United States Antarctic Program USAP uses Hercules LC 130 aircraft in airlift operations but other specially equipped planes can land here too this is an example of a ski equipped plane that is not an LC 130 It is so cold here that pilots don t turn off the plane s engines even in the summer because there is a very real concern that the engines

  • Virtual Tour - Poles
    the only traveling bear sent out by Ms Carmody s students that made it to every continent Ms Carmody said the bears they send out teach children geography I was happy to be a part of encouraging these children Photo CARA R Landsberg David Barnaby was a winterover for SPIREX in 1997 The first picture is Dave during summer not long after he arrived when the Sun was still up The second picture is Dave standing in the same place but 6 months later after the Sun set It just looks cold doesn t it Photos CARA D Barnaby Geographic South Pole The Geographic South Pole the place where all the longitude lines converge is a point established annually using Geological Survey Doppler positioning techniques and is a few hundred meters beyond the ceremonial Pole The reason the two poles are not the same is that when you are at the South Pole you are standing on a glacier 2 miles of ice The ice slowly flows about 10 meters year or 1 1 inches day So even though the pole itself isn t really moving the ice itself moves so the markers that are stuck in the ice move and you have to pound in a new marker each year The ceremonial Pole isn t moved annually it just gets carried along by the ice with everything else This is the geographic South Pole and a picture that absolutely everyone takes at least once The thing that looks like a giant nail in the right front is the marker that gets set every year If you look closely in the enlarged image click to retrieve you can see the markers from previous years in a row behind the guy holding the flag Here is a closeup of the sign

    Dark Sector The person is Al Fowler walking toward us towards the Dome Photo CARA D Harper CARA s science falls into broad categories roughly by wavelength microwave specifically cosmic microwave background radiation submillimeter and infrared visible Most of the astronomical instruments are controlled from within the MAPO building AST RO the main submillimeter experiment has its own building All projects also also collect data on site characterization there are

  • Virtual Tour - MAPO
    one of the CMBR experiments Labs and control rooms for most of the CARA projects as well as the AMANDA project are inside the MAPO building on the second floor The first floor is a machine shop storage etc The building is on stilts because buildings that are on the surface of the ice like the dome tend to trap the blowing snow and steadily get buried However buildings on stilts let the snow blow through them so the snow doesn t accumulate Remember also that the ice is moving flowing at a rate of about 10 meters year Most of the pictures here are from when the virtual tour was originally written in 1995 The first few are more recent We re working on getting more current images Rodney Marks the 1997 1998 winter over and usually based at the University of New South Wales in the Martin A Pomerantz Observatory building with Al Fowler Fred Mrozek University of Chicago Engineering Center at work in the SPIREX MAPO bridge Rodney Marks and Paul Martini having a discussion in the MAPO building Pictures from 1995 There are labs in the MAPO building as well Here Fred Mrozek works on the Celestrons that are part of the ATP project but mounted on the SPIREX telescope He s actually working in the walkway that goes from the MAPO building to the SPIREX tower which is closed off in the winter because it is insufficiently insulated Here the winterovers for 1995 pose on top of the MAPO building left to right Jamie Lloyd Mike Masterman and Richard Chamberlin AMANDA project AMANDA is not a CARA project it is one of many other projects at the South Pole AMANDA shares lab space with CARA in the MAPO building however One thing that makes AMANDA

  • Virtual Tour - Submillimeter experiments
    this tour was originally written in 1995 The first few pictures are more recent than that We are working on getting more recent images soon The AST RO canopy is being lifted on to the top of the AST RO building In the background is the dome Xji Le and Tony Stark waving from AST RO SPARO Giles Novak and student Jen Marshall SPARO is a new instrument commissioned in 1999 This is the building that houses AST RO The South Pole is behind you in this picture The telescope was installed at the Pole in the 1994 5 summer season Richard Chamberlin the first winter over for the AST RO team poses by the telescope This is the AST RO telescope itself the large circular thing is the primary mirror Behind the telescope you can see the tent that covers the instrument in bad weather In this side view you can see the truss structure that supports the primary mirror You can also see that the primary mirror is very thin In fact the primary is made of a carbon fiber epoxy and with a diameter of 1 7 meters it weighs only about 40 pounds Compare with the
