Team BICEP has made it to the South Pole after a lengthy delay in McMurdo. These guys know what they are doing and we could have a very quick turnover. I had myself put on the last Saturday flight, assuming it would be delayed and we would have the whole day to work. It is a bit strange that the delays have become so frequent that I can actually use them in my favor.
Things worked out exactly as planned and I boarded an LC-130 at 5pm. Tomo took this picture of me walking to the plane. [tags]Antarctica, South Pole, LC-130, leaving[/tags]
