Red lights cast a glow on South Pole Telescope

February 25, 2014
Red lights on the South Pole Telescope cast a glow. The red lights help maintenance workers while doing routine repairs on the telescope. The National Science Foundation runs the U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP). In addition to maintaining three U.S. research stations on the continent, USAP supports research projects in an array of scientific disciplines including, for example, aeronomy and astrophysics, biology and medicine, geology and geophysics, glaciology, and ocean and climate systems. Outreach such as the Antarctic Artists and Writers program and education programs are also supported. (Date of image: Aug. 19, 2010) Credit: Daniel Luong-Van, National Science Foundation
