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.
