By Alex Dobuzinskis VENTURA, Calif. (Reuters) - California wildfire evacuee Richard Seabold once spent a month in the South Pole, so he knows something about surviving in tough conditions. Life in an emergency shelter, however, has been...Show More Summary
(National Science Foundation) Observations of two galaxies made with the National Science Foundation-funded Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) radio telescope suggest that large galaxies formed faster than scientists had previously thought.
Everyone knows about Robert Scott’s doomed race to the South Pole in 1911. But on that same expedition three of his men made a death-defying trip
If you’re a particle physicist, sometimes you travel across the globe and sometimes you travel into it. What do a big chunk of ice at the South Pole, a mine in northern Ontario, and a mountain in Italy have in common? They’re all home to extreme underground environments, but they’re connected in another, more unexpected way. Show More Summary
What do selfies from the South Pole have to do with deep space missions? Quite a lot, actually. On November 20, NASA used a selfie taken outside Antarctica's McMurdo Station at the bottom of the world and sent to the International Space Station to show off a new technology called Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN).

What strange experiments are going on in Antarctica? Find out with these five things you should know about the IceCube Observatory from The Telescope in the Ice author Mark Bowen.
(RIKEN) Using numerical simulations, the group showed how a magnetic field could be used to control the properties of north and south poles, which are fractionalized from magnetic moments of electrons, on a frustrated magnet called a quantum spin ice.
China will add a third Antarctic Survey Telescope (AST3) to the South Pole array for observing gravitational waves, and introduce more equipment for its observation work, Chinese scientists said on Sunday. The AST3-3 telescope is expected to be installed on...
LONDON (Reuters) - With solar panels tacked to their sledges and a biofuel made from wood chips to keep them warm, a British father and son duo will attempt to reach the South Pole relying solely on green energy.
Membership to one of the most exclusive clubs in the world takes place around a short red and white striped pole in Antarctica. Only those who endure an atmospheric difference of 300 degrees Fahrenheit are granted entry. To join theShow More Summary
In 2013, polar adventurer Ben Saunders, along with his partner Tarka L’Herpiniere, set out from the coast of Antarctica to ski to the South Pole and back again, unsupported (meaning they carried all their food and supplies with them). Show More Summary
NASA scientists and engineers have conceived and plan to build an ambitious submillimeter-wave or radio instrument to study the composition of geysers spewing water vapor and icy particles from the south pole of Saturn's small moon, Enceladus.
When Philip Broughton boarded a flight to the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in 2002, he didn’t intend to become an Antarctic bartender. Following a terrible day at work, he had decided to get away, and, after a Google search andShow More Summary
"If we can start to connect the X-ray signatures with the physical processes that produce them, then we can use those signatures to understand other bodies across the Universe such as brown dwarfs, exoplanets or maybe even neutron stars. It...
On November 15, a dramatic demonstration of sustainable technology starts in Antarctica as father and son team Robert Swan, 61, and Barney Swan, 23, set out on the first attempt to walk to the South Pole using only renewable energy sources. Show More Summary
Researchers with NASA's Cassini mission found evidence of a toxic hybrid ice in a wispy cloud high above the south pole of Saturn's largest moon, Titan. "This cloud represents a new chemical formula of ice in Titan's atmosphere," said Carrie...
