Also – I can’t recall what they did with the dome. There was talk about disassembling it, and then reassembling it for a Seabees museum in California, but I’m not sure what they finally decided. But it’s not at the Pole, that’s for sure.
According to an article in a scientific magazine:
“…the dome is being returned to southern California where it will be held in storage. The top sections of the dome have been specially preserved so that they can be re-assembled for a possible exhibit in a new U.S. Navy Seabees museum.”
Great pictures of yours about the “raised footprints”!
Thanks for the information. Today’s a good day – I just got word from a friend for the first time in a long time now, and she is currently the station manager at South Pole.
I’m glad you liked the raised footprint photos – The Atlantic put together a collection of recent photos a few months back, and I was surprised to find that they had included two of mine: nacreous clouds and raised footprints.
