Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station
The elevated station at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station has room for 140 people. This is the third station at the South Pole in the past 60 years. The first station, completed in 1957, was allowed to be buried under the accumulating snow. The second station, built in the 1970s, housed buildings under a geodesic dome. The current station was completed in 2018 and is elevated above the snow surface. (National Science Foundation photo)
