Walking through the new American Amundsen Scott South Pole station

An evening pause: In honor of the 100th anniversary of Roald Amundsen’s arrival at the South Pole on this date, 1911, lets take a tour through the recently completed new Amundsen Scott South Pole station.

At one point right after walking through the cafeteria the cameraman points the camera out a window where you can see several flagpoles. That is where the actual South Pole is located. The camera than looks out a second window at a partly buried dome, which is the old station, no longer in use.

This video astonishes at what humans can accomplish in the most hostile environments.
