Unveiling of the new South Pole Marker
Unveiling of the new South Pole Marker. In a New Year's tradition at NSF's Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, a handmade marker, designed and created on-site, is revealed to designate the geographic South Pole. Because the ice sheet moves each year, it is necessary to mark the Pole annually.
