To start off our Sunday, I went to the Observation Tube (referred to as the Ob Tube) together with Susan, Maya, Isabel, and Martin.
I step awkwardly into the narrow tube, descend a ladder that chills my hands, and sit in a glass box under the sea ice.
It is silent, save the cries of seals.
There are science lectures twice a week in McMurdo, a great opportunity for teams to share what they are doing on the ice. Tonight at the galley, Kirsty and Dave presented wonderfully on ROSETTA-Ice.
Thanks for all the superb photos of the Ob Tube, Susan Howard!
