About 900 individuals, including researchers and bolster staff, work at the station this season.
Human passings are remarkable in Antarctica, notwithstanding its cruel condition. As of late as October, a subcontractor kicked the bucket of characteristic causes at Palmer Station, one of two other NSF stations on the solidified mainland. A 43-year-old electronic upkeep expert from Canada passed on at McMurdo on New Year’s Day 2000.
