South Pole Research Station Open

By Linda Tancs

Germany’s latest engineering triumph stands on a 200-meter thick ice shelf in the South Pole. Named Neumayer-Station III after geophysicist Georg von Neumayer, the sixteen-legged research station bests the competition by sporting rooms with a view. There’s not much to see, however, but an endless horizon of snow and the occasional penguin. Let’s hope the yearlong climate data collection it offers is worth every bit of its 40 million euro price tag.
