Americans have occupied and worked continuously at the South Pole since 1956. The famous Dome of the South Pole Station was closed in 2007 after more than thirty years in action; a new elevated structure took over as the main building in 2008. The ice sheet is 2700 meters thick at the Station's location.

The Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the University of Delaware. On Friday 1 November at 7:30pm at HRPO, Center Supervisor will give a brand-new talk on the science performed at the South Pole Station. There is free admission to the lecture.

BREC Center Supervisor Tom Northrop will repeat his wonderful "South Pole Science" talk on Friday 9 October at 7:30pm. Of course, it will be at the Highland Road Park Observatory. There is no admission fee and the talk is aimed at a general adult audience.

Some may be familiar with the SciArt Conversation series which has been sporadically active on and around the LSU campus since 2011. The latest show, "Persistence of Vision", is a half-hour exhibition of video portraits created by Trish Suchy and Vince LiCata. The show will be held at various times from 16 to 19 March at the Black Box in Coates Hall. Suchy and LiCata have restaged historic photos from Scott's famous 1911 expedition with modern researchers and staff in Antarctica at this time. The result is a gallery-style grouping of "time-altered 'video-portraits'", as LiCata says in the email I received. Reserving a seat is optional, but if too many people arrive those with reservations get priority. There is no admission fee, although donations are welcome.
