The Amundsen-Scott South Pole Elevated Station Tour! Come with me and take a tour of the entire Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station! In this video I show you pretty much all of the public and social areas, the dorm areas, and even some work centers! If you've ever wondered what the South Pole Station looks like, well, here ya go! 🙌

*I am currently living and working at the South Pole Station through the United States Antarctic Program. I am not down here as a filmmaker or photographer, but instead work in the Logistics and Supply department. All of these videos are being made during my free time and not during working hours. We are very busy down here keeping the station running at maximum efficiency, but I have managed to find some free time to make these short movies!*

  • I’ve heard that you only get 2 minutes shower twice a week, is it true or someone’s bullshitting me?

  • PLEASE don't apologize for the length of the video!! I loved it. I first got interested in the South Pole when the American doctor working there in 1999 (Dr Jerri Nielsen) developed breast cancer, and diagnosed herself. With the help of the winterover crew, they staged a midwinter airdrop of supplies (chemo drugs, freshies, and medical equipment), and she was evacuated in early spring. (Back then, the Dome was still at the Pole.) I may never be able to experience the Pole myself, but I love watching your videos. Keep em coming!

  • Not sure if you'll be reading comments almost a year after this video dropped but seeing all of the safety precautions made me wonder: Has there been any major disasters at the south Pole or any other antarctica station that needed emergency response teams called in?

I have a ton of questions about the station and antarctica in general. Can you guys get mail? Do any of you guys have pen-pals? I know email exists but it would be cool to have a pen-pal in antarctica.

    • @Gone Venturing I will. Ive alwasy been interested in science and i love what people are doing there but I'm a GED guy. I figure my best chance would be unloading cargo since i have distribution and wharehouse exp. But a cook or refuse worker anything like that would be a good fit as well. Thanks for responding, the video was very interesting. As far as Ive been able to discover so far is that there are some government sites to aply. Do you know of a specific place to apply?

      Brant StiflerBrant Stifler2 måneder siden

  • This was a very interesting video. Thank you for taking the time to put it together. Two questions if you have a moment: first, it appears either security among everyone is very trusting as there were no locked doors or perhaps you unlocked doors off camera? Second, do you know the thought process behind using ship terminology for the station (i.e. galley, berthing, etc.)? Thanks again for the video.

    skibum415skibum4152 måneder siden
    • Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoyed it! As far as your questions go, there actually is very little security, but the application process is pretty robust, so I think there is a pretty high level of trust. Also, so many people have small tasks to do in different locations that it’s probably easier to leave stuff unlocked. These are guesses as I didn’t make policy, but yeah, I think that makes the most sense. As far as the terminology goes, I’m pretty sure it has to do with the fact that the original American stations on the Ice were all originally navy. While it’s no longer military (aside from the air transport and vessel offload), they probably just kept the terminology!

  • You go outside in the South Pole in just a t shirt. I have a at least 2 layers inside of a house heated to 73F. 🤣 I still dream of spending the winter months in the McMurdo station teaching yoga and mediation to the few who stay to help fight all the psychological and physical ailments that intense isolation brings.

  • I've been digging into Antarctica and it's explorations, etc and have become infatuated. To the point I looked up prices for a "vacation" and I can't afford it unless I save up for awhile, and now I'm even toying of the thought of employment up there during the Summer months, but being as I currently have a good paying career already I'm not so sure they would be privvy to me walking away for 4+ months. Can't wait to dive into this video to feed my fantasy in my head.

Nice to see that the photos of some of my favorite running trails that I put up in front of one of the treadmills in the weight room are still there. I commend and thank you for having the tenacity to edit and organize your video for this presentation. I have hours of video of every aspect of the station and all of the outbuildings and telescopes as well as "the berms" and "the end of the world." I doubt that anyone will ever see them but me. Thanks for sharing all of this. It is such a unique honor to be part of the South Pole family!

Learning more about the IceCube Experiment in the station you work led me to this interesting video and how important are the investments the US National Science Foundation does: I found your video after watching RT video about Russian antarctic stations: In that documentary one of the chief stations says "science is only the show, it's all geopolitics really". Though he might be right, US NSF is doing a great job in that South Pole Station and you must be proud to be part of it. Congratulations!

Outdoor funs such as no ice hockey arena. You have not shown us antenna on the roof, satellite dishes...of different bands...etc. No switching hubs are shown too. Your South Pole station is lacking of everything. No real library with a librarian, no pottery room with lessons. No lost and found counter. No cat or dog. No psychiatrist, no artificial rock climbing , no photo studios. Worser than a prision or a jail house in china for the Uygurs. I will not suggest Elons to copy your south pole design to have the same one on the moon or mars.
