McMurdo Station: 50 years of science exploration JSC-38571C/CTSD-ADV-245C Feb 2003, NASA JSC


The Antarctica Model JSC-38571C/CTSD-ADV-245C Feb 2003, NASA JSC

Fifty years of continuous operations, 1-15 month tours.

Three permanent bases with temporary field camps.

Dec 1956: Bases established, IGY Cold War competition.

Science exploration was rationale, NSF had responsibility for science.

1970s, 1980s: US Antarctic research program operated as a part of foreign policy & military preparedness for cold weather operations.

1990s: Cold War ends, military activities in USARP reduced.

2000: Helicopter transport provided by private sector.

2005: Civilian science (NSF) managed program entirely. Contractor operation of base (Ratheon Polar Services)

Air Force provides transport to Antarctica, Coast Guard provides ice breaker.

2006: NSF directed to assume operation of ice breakers.


Don’t send humans JSC-38571C/CTSD-ADV-245C Feb 2003, NASA JSC

because they will contaminate Mars before we have a chance to determine if it has life and its potential for life


We’ve already contaminated Mars JSC-38571C/CTSD-ADV-245C Feb 2003, NASA JSC
