What amazes me is that in barely 40 years we went from no human having set foot at the South Pole in history to having a permanent community there. The audacity of our species never ceases to impress.

When think of scientists, we stereotypically think of people who lack people skills and physical prowess for their pursuit of science. But these are one of the toughest people on earth who's not only fit on the body but also their minds. Salute to their sacrifice for the mankind.

At least there is a "lifeboat" habitat in case of emergencies, like say some of the scientists were to plant thermite charges and find a 100000-year-old crashed alien spacecraft containing a horrific DNA copying creature...great foresight.:)

This very weird. Why did you didn't mention all the other antarctic bases ? My country (chile) has like some stations that could be easily be used (and had been used) to support other nations over there. And I know for a fact that both the Chilean Army and Navy has planes and Icebreaker ships that could be used to provide support. In fact the hospital and the airport shown in the video are located in Chile, the country closest in the world to the south pole. So why did you skip so many facts ?

So you're telling me there is a place on Earth where it's totally normal to spend several months on end indoors in a relatively small building, in perpetual darkness for most of the year, with nothing but the cold howling wind outside, ice and snow as far as the eye can see, and you do this with a somewhat small group of people but other than that the rest of the world leaves you alone? And this is somehow a sacrifice? Sounds like an introvert's dream vacation!

These people are so lucky. I am so jealous. I don’t know how someone could refer to it as a sacrifice. To live for nine months away from civilization. To not have to deal with the arrogant, mean, nasty, annoying, narcissistic, evil animals that are referred to as humans. I need to find a way to get there!
