Working at the South Pole

The quicktime graphic shows the site of an AMANDA deployment. It shows the tower holding the the drilling hoses and electrical cables. A hole of approximately 2 km in depth is drilled. MAPO, the building which houses the electronics of AMANDA, serves as mission control for the AMANDA project. In the background, you can see the Amundsen-Scott Research base (the dome), a C-130 Hercules cargo transport plane, and several telescopes built by the Center for Astrophysical Reseach in Antarctica (CARA)
