|The Seventh Continent|
|Welcome to "The Seventh Continent",
Ethan's Antarctic Home Page
A Special Welcome to readers who found my webpage mentioned in the April edition of "Cooking Light" Magazine. You'll find my mention of cooking Thai curry in the Antarctic here.
McMurdo opened for the summer on October 4th, and the first two flights arrived at South Pole on October 21st. We have the busiest season ever underway - the summer population is expected to be a staggering 274. The biggest thing this summer is the work on Ice Cube, but there's plenty more going on, including the shutdown and dismantling of AST/RO.
I'll be especially busy this summer, installing gear in the Temporary Ice Cube Laboratory and helping to deploy DOMs once the drillers start putting in holes. While you are waiting on me to have time to make updates, you can see what I was up to ten years ago this month.
I was surprised be browsing through the Sunday paper in Christchurch and running across a picture of me at the Pole from July, 2004, as I posed for my 300 Club photo
The feedback page is still working great.
The answer to the number one question, "how many continents are there?" is seven: Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe and Australia (in decreasing order of size).
Got a question about the Seventh Continent?
Have a suggestion? Found a cool Antarctic link? Or, do you just want
to talk about the bottom of the world?
Drop us a line!
