So it seams like most are happy to see a little more of the frozen continent.
So why am I down here? I work for the AAD which means the Australian Antarctic Division and we are down here to support science. My roll is to maintain the power house that keeps the station powered with light and heat.
Is what makes it possible to live down here in temperatures as low as -60.
Im going to share the journey south to Antarctica on the icebreaker Aurora Australis. Its our resupply ship that travels down to each station once per year.
I left from Hobart Australia late last year.
