Our Stuff Returns

Thursday. Our sling load came home today, on (todays) schedule. The top photo shows the sling load being deposited on the helipad.

Unloading was quick; the bottom photo shows it caught in a traffic jam on the way to BFC, where we will unpack it and send the scientific stuff North. Our stuff is the wooden box on the frontloader, plus the load in the stake truck behind it.

I should probably also mention that the station continues to communicate, and we are taking data continuously. The next step is to get a more serious data analysis effort going.


  1. Great blog Spencer. Wonderful stuff.

    Marcus, the nethelands, Amsterdam.

    I have a big interrest in astronomy.
    I also like the exotic stuff, like neutrino's.
    It seems to me that the trick is to seperate
    the gold from the mud, am i right?
    Interresting blog about such a cold
    and far-away place.
    Good luck with your neutrino-chase!

  3. Its is very pleasant to know that your stuff returns fine. Thanks for sharing this with us.
