South Pole Flight

I made it to the South Pole today. 

Flight was almost 5 hours long.  We had to have oxygen supplemented during the flight because the plane is not pressurized.  There was plenty of leg room.  That part I enjoyed.   I’m currently dealing with the fun of being at high altitudes.  The actual altitude is 9,000 ft but the pressure altitude is about 11,000 ft.

The first building I saw as we approach was the large radio telescope (South Pole Telescope). 

It was a great trip and I’ll try to get updates as I can now that I am here.
