South Pole Trip Diary

The Economist

Even The Economist has now jumped onto the Climate Change bandwagon. As part of their global warming series they have published Michelangelo D’Agostino’s diary about a trip to the South Pole. He describe the experience rather accurately from a first-timers perspective. Michelangelo is graduate student for the IceCube project at Berkeley.

My favorite quote has to be this one:

FOR veteran “Polies”, a stopover at McMurdo Station … is like passing through Heathrow: an uncomfortable, often prolonged, but necessary evil.

Well said. It does have a nice coffee shop and you get a chance to meet some old friends, though.

So, hop on over and read the diary.
