We are very happy to report that our team has made it to South Pole.

Neutrino researchers at South Pole

Whoever can identify Chris and Geoff, is up for a price, but these are all neutrino researchers currently at South Pole. Pretty impressive number, right? They are standing around the glass globe that marks South Pole, which is probably the most photographed object down there.

Gearing up for the next season

After doing a lot of analysis that was presented in our papers and at conferences like the ICRC or at TeVPa, we are gearing up for the new season. Nothing is final yet, but it looks like we have been approved to go to Antarctica again and very likely also to South Pole. South Pole?? Yes, we will be exploring the possibility of moving ARIANNA to South Pole. Sounds interesting?

The same procedure as every year

... the team gets snowed in.

Tent under snow

It is so foreseeable that we already plan with it, when we make the schedule for our time in the field. At least two days will be spent sitting in the tent, catching up on writing down logs and documentation and watching movies preferably about people dying on cold mountains or in the snow. The correct amount of irony for such a weather.

News from the team

So, this season, we are at the other end of the information flow. Namely on the low priority end, well almost. We are in touch regularly about station performance, wifi-network status, training needs and logistics. However, the "so, what happened outside of scientific routine"-part is clearly not as exciting as it is when you are down on the ice yourself. Anyway, we can make the best of it and let you know that also this year, things are exciting and never the same on the Ross ice-shelf.
