Antarctica Dispatch

Journal of my Antarctic experience working to support the United States Antarctic Program.

Hello, is there Anyone There?


Well following up to the Internet problem from the day before, all of the USAP stations lost network connectivity back to the USA! The datacenter back in Denver lost power, thus everything went down. We still had AFARTS and could make telephone calls through Scott Base, but for over 8 hours yesterday we had no Internet connection.

Thankfully no one was bugging us about when it would be back up. I think if this was the South Pole, where people are Internet junkies, we'd be inundated with questions. Life and work went on as normal. I caught up on some reading.
