South Pole Flight - In a holding pattern

The team is still in a holding pattern to make the flight to the South Pole, but they are not idle. Today the group was given a tour of the Novolazarevskaya Station. Their tour guide was an Astrophysicist, and he took them to every corner of the base. 

The "Novo" Antarctic Research station is located at Schirmacher OasisQueen Maud Land, 75 km from the Antarctic coast, from which it is separated by Lazarev Ice Shelf. It was opened on January 18, 1961 by the 6th Soviet Antarctic Expedition. The maximum summer population is 70.

The team will be going back to the station tonight to oserve the launching of a weather baloon.
