South Pole Diaries 1995/96



The 3rd year of the South Pole reports. This years players being myself (Michael Burton) and Craig Smith, but I'm sure by the end of this diary many others will have made guest appearances. The JACARA South Pole site testing campaign is still growing, and this year our plan is for a refurbishment to the faithful IRPS so it can survive a third year wintering on the Ice. Michael Ashley's enhancements should now allow the IRPS to now dance a jig (or at least continually replenish the liquid nitrogen supply without external assistance (it can now monitor the amount of LN2 in the storage dewar, and pressurise the dewar if necessary)).
