Re: Antarctica as a Mars Analogue

The ice under the UK's Halley research station in Antarctica has rapidly increased in speed following the calving of big bergs. The base (currently unoccupied) is in no immediate danger but Sentinel1a can see new rifts in the ice.

Re: Antarctica as a Mars Analogue

For Mars_B4_Moon re Post #55

Thank you for the links in #55, and specifically for the Stack Exchange debate ... The long series of replies concluded with a thoughtful reply from someone who might be associated with the Mars Society.  I thought the entire series was worth reading, with various degrees of understanding reflected in the text.

I am persuaded by the concluding argument, that the extreme conditions of the antarctic are not needed, and the existing desert facilities (around the world) can be enhanced to approach closer and closer to self-sufficiency.

One poster listed off the existing remote outposts which are (presumably) contributing to knowledge suitable for the Mars effort.

Re: Antarctica as a Mars Analogue

the issue of delays and sickness

After Pandemic Hiatus, America's Only Heavy Coast Guard Icebreaker Returning to Antarctica

https://www.military.com/daily-news/202 … ctica.html

The ship will carry a team of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists on board who will survey McMurdo's Winter Quarters Bay and also test a hydroponic garden system to see whether crew members can grow fruits and vegetables aboard the ship, according to Woityra.

With the McMurdo mission canceled last year, the Polar Star crew of 134 deployed instead to the Arctic for a show of American presence in the region, as well as to test communications equipment and conduct training exercises.

The mission was the first time a Coast Guard cutter had traveled north of the Arctic Circle during the winter in nearly 40 years.

To prepare for this year's Antarctica mission, the 46-year old vessel has been in drydock, part of a service-life extension project designed to make it last another decade as the Coast Guard builds the first of three new heavy icebreakers under the Polar Security Cutter program.

Some of the ship's systems are new, and some are refurbished and repurposed from Polar Star's sister vessel, Polar Sea, kept in drydock for donor parts.

This year, when Polar Star suffered a "major casualty" of its emergency generator -- "it spun out of control and basically ate itself," Woityra said -- Polar Sea supplied the replacement, a system that otherwise would have taken 18 months to fabricate.

"We sent it out to be cleaned and refurbished, and now it's good to go," Woityra said.

VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula, Mississippi, was selected to build the first Polar Security Cutter, with construction expected to begin this year. The first of the $745 million, 460-foot vessels is expected to be delivered in 2024.

Meanwhile, Woityra's crew will work to ensure that Polar Star can carry on the McMurdo resupply mission for at least the next three years. It's not an easy task, the commanding officer said, considering the age of the vessel and its parts.

In 2019, Polar Star had a fire onboard during Operation Deep Freeze -- a blaze in the garbage incinerator that took the crew two hours to put out. The incinerator was destroyed, but the crew managed to keep the fire from spreading.

But with many of the systems, including the incinerator, having been upgraded, Woityra said the ship is in better shape "than it's been in a decade."

The crew getting underway is 100% vaccinated against COVID-19 and has been since May. More than half are new to the ship, and fewer than one-third have ever made the trip to Antarctica.

Many of the 42 "non-rates" -- Coast Guard members who have not yet gone to a school for a professional specialty -- postponed applying to school so they could make the trip.

This will be Woityra's fifth journey to Antarctica and, likely, his last.

How Antarctica’s history of isolation is ending—thanks to Starlink
https://www.technologyreview.com/2024/0 … -internet/

Operation Deep Freeze archive film, International agreements. The impetus behind Operation Deep Freeze I was the International Geophysical Year 1957–58. IGY as it was known was a collaborative effort among forty nations to carry out earth science studies from the North Pole to the South Pole and at points in between. The United States along with New Zealand, the United Kingdom, France, Japan, Norway, Chile, Argentina, and the U.S.S.R. agreed to go to the South Pole, the least explored area on Earth. Their goal was to advance world knowledge of Antarctic hydrography and weather systems, glacial movements, and marine life.
The U.S. Navy was charged with supporting the U.S. scientists for their portion of the IGY studies. Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, a veteran of four previous Antarctic Expeditions, was appointed as officer in charge of the expedition.

A history of McMurdo Station through its architecture
https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals … 7E170B3B38

The wealth of information embedded in the history of the buildings on Ross Island is a valuable resource for those seeking to improve the living and working conditions through the built environment. Unfortunately, until now, a publicly available, single source of architectural information has not existed. Demands on human habitations have grown from those of a few dozen explorers to several hundred scientists and contract employees. During this time the buildings have advanced from imported wooden huts with little or no ventilation control, to imported steel-framed structures with massive HVAC systems. The complexities presented by this station are compounded by its remoteness, size and architectural legacy. Approaching a new, comprehensive design is daunting. Therefore, it is important to be prepared with knowledge of the specific challenges and cold-region best practices (that is, the mechanical and structural demands of a remote cold desert, ways to promote energy efficiency without sacrificing occupant comfort, and the effects of isolated environments on human behaviour). There are many parameters to apply to new developments at McMurdo Station, but they are beyond the scope of this article. An architectural history of the station is one tool. Understanding and documenting the history of the station's architectural evolution should remain a priority for any current and future plans.

Golemis has been working as a member of the European Space Agency’s medical team since 2018 and is based out of Cologne. In 2019, just after completing his training, he was assigned as the second doctor of Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano’s mission and now he has just finished monitoring 43-year-old Pesquet on his most recent mission. “Aerospace medicine is not a recognized specialty in most European countries. Joining the ESA is a combination of effort and luck, there is no predetermined route,” he says.

He studied medicine at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and later finished his postgraduate degree at the International Space University in Strasbourg.

Re: Antarctica as a Mars Analogue

What it’s really like to live in Antarctica
https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/really- … 09200.html
A five-month-long slumber party. A college dorm. An introvert’s hell.

Those are just some of the words residents of Antarctica use to describe life in the world’s coldest, most mysterious continent.

In 1959, 12 countries - including Chile, Japan, Australia and the United States – signed the Antarctic Treaty, pledging that the seventh continent would only be used “for peaceful purposes only.” As a result, there are no military bases there, although military planes and ships can bring people and supplies.

That means that only a few thousand humans can say that they have lived in Antarctica.

And yet, despite bunking with strangers, taking 90-second showers and having zero privacy, there are intrepid travelers who believe all the challenges are worth it.

Keri Nelson is one of them.

The Minnesota native first went to the White Continent in 2007 to work as a janitor at McMurdo Base, one of the three US outposts there. Now a veteran of 16 Antarctica seasons, she has done stints at all three stations – in addition to McMurdo, the largest and most active, there are Amundsen-Scott Station at the geographic south pole, and Palmer Station, north of the Antarctic peninsula.

“If I was going to describe it in musical form,” Nelson says, “I would say McMurdo was like gritty, dirty bluegrass and South Pole was like symphony music and Palmer is like really corny, fun pop music.”
Summer camp for grownups

In the summer months from October to March there can be as many as 1,000 people at McMurdo Base, from scientists to carpenters to dishwashers. Many support staffers have multiple jobs.

For example, Evan Townsend, creator of the Antarctica Flag, worked in the kitchen, tended bar and managed the craft room during his stint there.

“It is an entire town,” Keri Nelson says of McMurdo. “You could go whole seasons and never meet a lot of people there, and it’s just very busy at those stations. It’s just bustle, bustle, bustle all the time.” That’s due to McMurdo’s size as the biggest base, but also due to the rotation of staff, since people will move between other stations or go out on expeditions and research trips throughout the season.

While there are some modern amenities – a room for watching DVDs, a craft room, a gym – the clubhouse feel of the base offers lots of opportunities for socializing. Nelson has organized fashion shows complete with a runway and played music in the “ice bands” that often form during a season.

Just three kilometers (two miles) from McMurdo is New Zealand’s Scott Base, and sometimes staffers will make the trip across Ross Island to visit their US counterparts – joining in on their jam sessions, book club meetings and movie marathons. Some staffers even volunteer to teach classes in yoga, languages or other interests.

This event will continue to be stupid or be a story 15 years later, 16, 17, and 18 until a more 'crazy' event happens

it seems she was maybe aware of what she was doing but also maybe suffered some type of psychotic breakdown, but she never claimed 'insanity' in trial and was sentenced as part of a plea deal. The US Navy went after her from results of the NASA case, the US Navy has rules in regard to morals and cheating and because they had violated the Navy's rules prohibiting adultery. It was recommend Nowak be separated from the Navy with an other than honorable discharge and reduction in rank from captain to commander.  United States Assistant Secretary of the Navy Garcia said in a statement, "fell well short" of what is expected of Navy officers and "demonstrated a complete disregard for the well-being of a fellow service member"

over time as humans try to expand beyond Earth there might be more events even in Outer Space

Why am I lonely? Lack of social connections hurts Americans' mental health.

Lucy in the Sky is a 2019 American psychological drama film loosely inspired by the life of NASA astronaut Lisa Nowak, who is portrayed by Natalie Portman
A number in the media and entertainment business found Nowak's story fascinating, and it was been adapted for television, a film, and a 2007 episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. A 2008 Molly Lewis song, "Road Trip", recounts the details of early news reports about Nowak's trip from Houston to Orlando. The 2017 Austra music video for "I Love You More Than You Love Yourself" references the actions leading up to Nowak's final arrest, with bandleader Katie Stelmanis playing the role of Lisa Nowak.

the retired astronaut Marsha Ivins, who flew five missions, criticized the premise of the 'Lucy in the Sky' plot and denied that there is such a thing as a "longstanding idea that says astronauts begin to lose their grip on reality after being in space for an extended period of time".

He also stabbed two security guards who intervened—one in the head and one in the back and shoulders.

Certain other culture culture might cover up crime?

There might be also a particular balance


Haiti does not have many official police per 100,000 of population and the Country is an ongoing disaster of Social Collapse and Anarchy


and since the topic of Churches and Religion has come up at the South Pole maybe a look 'unofficial' counted police at the Vatican Law, the Roman Catholic Church, the Vatican is a weird one while it does not really have Police, types of Guardian Sentry, Active force it does have a lot of Foreign Mercenary Army called 'The Swiss Guard' they dress with very fancy color costume but it the equivalent of the army of the Vatican City and is responsible for safeguarding the Vatican and protecting the Pope the guards are mostly born in Rome to parents of Swiss descent and speak the Roman dialect they are one of the world’s oldest units and have been in existence since the early 16th century.

Japan a high trust social conformist country with low crime has 255 Police per 100,000 of the Japanese population

the United States has a similar number 278 but higher crime

Jamaica has 316     Police per 100,000 but is far more violent and dangerous than the USA again

Somalia only has 43 Police per 100,000 but is also far more violent and dangerous than the USA again

'Palestine' has a high number of 'Police' but its a disaster, historically they are in conflict with Jewish Israeli Police or there are Sharia Law islamic Militia who link to Terrorists.


Mars and the offworlds might have people who are scientifically busy and little crime as the South Pole has little crime, there might be doctors human or an AI Robot that learns to read signs of problems on the rise before they become serious problems.
