ASPECTS OF HUMAN LIFE IN ANTARCTICA


At present men can live more or less easily at Antarctic stations. The existence of these little communities improved from days of Amundsen and Scott, but there are still similar inconvenients.

The main problem is that all the necessary to live there must be foreseen by an annual plan.

With the budget assigned for Antarctic logistics, Antarctic commands from Armed Forces, on board "Almirante Irizar" Icebreaker and aircrafts Hércules C-130, transport the personnel that will perform scientific, techniques, and logistic tasks, as well as supplies for food, heat and mobility that will be used during the winter season.
