I thought you may enjoy seeing the weather at South Pole... we have TV's in the galley with what we call the scroll. It presents weather and station information .... and when I saw the Barometric Pressure I thought you all may like to see it.

Really at -80's it's not that bad with the 8 kts winds, but get a load of the altitude.... 11,000 ft. We especially feel the effects of the Barometric Pressure on days like today rather than the coldness.

We find ourselves saying things like, "I'm tired", "couldn't get out of bed this morning", or " I have no energy". then we look at the Barometric Pressure and say oh of course, that's why.

Jason,
Follow your heart and all your dreams will come true. Live the life you love and love the life you live! it's a big wide world out there, skies the limit!

You certainly do not have to be specialized in anything to work in Antarctica.... check out www.raytheonpolarservice.com thats "Raytheon Polar Services" and when you get to the search engine the jobs for Antarctica are listed under "Centennial, Colorado" Temporary jobs. check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thats friggin amazing... what kind of jobs do people do down there? I'm guessing you just can't go to "work on antarctica" without some sort of specialization?
