I have a weird interest in the logistics of people living in absurdly remote locations, so thanks for fueling this weird hobby of mine.

My grandpa was part of the team that was there in the 1950s originally. I had some of the clothes he wore restored recently - they are so warm that even in winter here, I still sweat in them.

These South Pole scientists are so isolated and live in such harsh conditions, they deserve the same respect as astronauts on the ISS

Crazy how during this whole pandemic the people in antarctica have been chilling in darkness

โ€œThe South Pole was not made for humansโ€

Probably more accurate to say that humans were not made for the South Pole.

What I really like about Wendover is there's no clickbait: the title's just a summary of the video topic and then he goes on and explains that topic in an understandable, engaging, detailed way. He lets the video do the talking, not the title

Extreme isolation, near permanent darkness, completely frozen.

Sounds like a nice place

Really cool that we basically have a small town in the middle of the most inhospitable continent on Earth

As a former Antarctican, this is remarkably accurate. Thank you for being one of the best Youtube content creators.

Polar scientist here, was there in Jan./Feb. Really enjoyed the video! First of yours that I've seen, but you hit on some of the small details of the day-to-day that I haven't ever heard any other doc mention.

COVID completely disrupted our planned instrument deployment this year. We were only able to get the 2021 winter-over down, no summer-only personnel at all. The first flight in - "station open" - was just this past Saturday (Sunday there - they use NZST), and he was on it, after leaving the US all the way back at the beginning of October. Quarantines in San Francisco, Christchurch, and McMurdo, and then the inevitable weather preventing the planes from flying from McMurdo->Pole (but that happens every year).

As someone who personally has two friends who did a winter at McMurdo station, I can confirm they did it just for fun and not that they were scientists

I love how a video about living in Antarctica still references the aerodynamics of plane wing. โœˆ๏ธ โค๏ธ

Antarctica is like another planet
-Hard to get in/out
-In some periods getting out is totaly impossible
-nobody really know who owns that land
-wierd day light cycle
-Extreme cold and other conditions
-Have to be self sufficient
-Slow internet and communication

Check the description, he accidentally linked instead of /WENDOVER. Always forgetting what channel he's on.
