South Pole is Closed

Just a few minutes ago, the last LC-130 safely returned
to Williams Field, marking the official close of South
Pole station for the summer. 64 folks are going to be
there for the winter, including 14 women. Apparently,
only a few are "available" and many more than usual are
FNG's. Could make for an interesting winter at the Pole!
