Antarctica in the news

A little Antarctica in the news

This first article shows abandoned bases around the continent:

This second article is about running at the South Pole. Running on the coast at McMurdo is easy compared to Pole. Running in the summer is easy compared to winter. It is all relative. I know that most of the running at the Pole takes place in a very small gerbil gym. Kudos to these brave, maybe frostbitten, folks. http://www.salon.com/books/feature/2010/05/14/wholphin_most_dangerous_jog/index.html
