What? Byrd was there twice in that decade; 1928-1930 and 1939-1940. Not sure what huskies puppies have to do with it.
which proves they were down there twelve years before as a husky was born there.Which makes it 1935 ish.
The video says the lake temperature was measured at 38 degrees F, that's warm? That's the temperature inside my refrigerator! Obviously it's not so warm at McMurdo:

I came across this vid which shows air footage of hundreds of square miles of warm ice free land down south, along with warm water lakes
Where else are you going to learn that 38 degrees F is warm?

This video is a good example why people should never be home-schooled.

I could have lived without the bible quotes and some lame commentary but otherwise there is some interesting old footage in that video. I had never seen those mountains of coal before, if the video narrator was right about the composition of the mountains.

there are however frozen lakes in the dry valley's, liquid and brackish but deep below a cap of solid ice which is also swept free of snow by the katabatic wind's.
So how if the continent is in darkness for six months of the year, how can plants photosynthesize, and make a massive amount of coal .
Heaps of jobs are being advertised, so it looks to me that mining and industry seems to be very active down there.
A place twice the size of the United States seems to be getting a lot of attention and not much publicity.
