A worker at Admundsen-Scott South Pole station

May 4, 2010
A worker at Admundsen-Scott South Pole station waves goodbye to an LC-130 military aircraft as it departs the station with approximately 35 employees who had "wintered over" (spent the winter) at the bottom of the world. The flight was the first of several to transport groups of residents home from the Antarctic.

The Amundsen-Scott station is one of three U.S. research stations on Antarctica. The National Science Foundation operates them all.
