THE ANTARCTIC SUN - REGULAR NEWS FROM THE US ANTARCTIC PROGRAM
For regular news of events and discoveries in the Antarctic, try browsing the website The Antarctic Sun (http://antarcticsun.usap.gov)
This is the newspaper of the Unites States Antarctic Program, and contains much of interest for Antarctic enthusiasts.
It was the USAP which temporarily erected the South Pole's impressive geodesic dome, devoted to polar studies. The dome was still in place when the Centenary Expedition led by Henry Worsley arrived there, and was finally disassembled, after three decades' useful life, in January 2010.
The website also includes features on individuals conducting current or recent polar research and activities, and a wide range of interesting articles.
