I was concerned about that myself, until I found this photo of another McMurdo Station researcher. Not really too concerned about the guy on the pole anymore......I wonder, if he slips off the pole will he burn up as he accelerates through the atmosphere on his way to outer space? Kind of the reverse of something burning up on re-entry, you know.
You would think he would have a safety harness; I imagine that pole is cold and slippery.
I don't think she's real. I think she's one of these.......Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's one of the Raytheon Technical Services Polar Services personnel.
Pretty much all the Raytheon people look like that. It was a nice place to work. We were all beautiful.
I see she's wearing our Heads Up/Look Down/Track While Scan Target Tracking and Info goggles (aka HULD.TWIST.TIG). Tres chic.
