Report: Summer Job

When we landed at the the British Antarctic Survey Base on Signy Island in the South Orkney Islands, we were informed that all of the scientists had left for the season and that only the facilities staff -- who were in the process of closing down the base for the winter -- remained on site. While my fellow passengers went off to look at penguins I asked for a tour of the base's "systems" and was rewarded with an excellent, private tour. Here is my Report on one man's "Summer Job."
