50 birthday party for HalleyWritten by Alex Gaffikin
Congratulations to Halley Research Station (76 degrees South) - 50 years old this year! Last week we had a celebration bringing together everyone from members of the Royal Society IGY advanced party, to current winterers via a live internet linkup to Antarctica. I went along officially as an ex-winterer but un-officially on the look-out for stuff for the Natural History Museum's Ice Station Antarctica. Part of the celebration featured a do-it-yourself exhibition (above); an eclectic collection of maps, t-shirts, flags and wonderful but poignant photos of an age of exploration gone by.
