CBS News - 3 Weks in Antarctica Three weeks in Antarctica

CBS News crew [correspondent Jerry Bowen, cameraman Brian Nolan, soundman John Weiser, and myself, producer Bruce Rheins] certainly didn't have it as tough as him or the others who first saw this huge—one-and-a-half times the size of the U.S.—and unforgiving continent. But getting here cannot be taken for granted.

Antarctic Development Squadron Six

Home page of "Ice Pirates", the world's southernmost airline!
Antarctic Development Squadron Six (VXE-6) operates on the harsh Antarctic Continent as the United States Navy's only squadron directly supporting the mission of polar research and scientific programs of the National Science Foundation. They deploy every year for winter flight operations in August and for Operation DEEP FREEZE from October to February. VXE-6 operates 7 LC-130 "Hercules" transport aircraft and 6 HH-1N "Huey" helicopters flying to most parts of Antarctica. The ski-equipped LC-130s move large amounts of cargo, personnel and fuel throughout the continent while the HH-1Ns operate in the local McMurdo area and in different field camp detachments and stations.
During the summer training cycle from March to September, the squadron, manned by over 400 highly trained personnel, is based at Naval Air Weapons Station, Point Mugu, California.

Malin's Antarctic Research.
Antarctic images by Malin Space Science Systems Inc.

All of the material here was captured by M.C. Malin during his fieldwork at McMurdo and environs in December 1993 and January 1994. These two MPEG segments were sent by Dr. Malin shortly after he and his assistant M. Ravine arrived in Antarctica. The first (1.6 Mbytes) shows their arrival and visit to the first sample site via helicopter; the second (1.7 Mbytes) shows their work at that site and return. These pages contain various still images and video clips sent back from McMurdo during the 1993-1994 mission.

Three bases have been built on Queen Maud land, all of which have since been decommissioned due to snow build up. In order to circumvent the accumulation of snow and consequent deterioration of the base, it was decided to build the new base, SANAE IV, on a rock outcrop (nunatuk) called Vesleskarvet. Scientific studies into upper air-, ionospheric- and magnetospheric physics are conducted by teams from the Universities of Potchefstroom and Natal (Durban).
The Directorate Antarctica and Islands of the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism is responsible for all logistical support. This includes the transport of personnel and goods to Antarctica as well as the provision of the base. The Public Works Department (PWD) is responsible for building and maintenance of the base itself.
