Yes it was popular mechanics I remember looking at it in issue when they talked about the new Virginia class. They had a poster with all the stuff they did on submarines, and one of them was on Ice Station X.

I read about the station somewhere, but it was not the original article -
probably an internet excerpt. Are you still looking for the link?

Also I wonder what you are doing in that picture attached to your screenname.

VERY interesting thread....

What exactly on BDG is worth looking at? I mean in a conspiracy type interest...

I mentioned BDG because it's a website driven soley by Polies. It's not corporate in any way. Hence, what is posted on BDG is probably as true as anything can be. There is little conspiracy on BDG, but if you want to know about The Ice, BDG is the site to read.

After all, if you know a lot about a place, you can then find the deeper facts, and use your knowledge accordingly.

Does anyone know what this could be? Do mountains naturaly form like this under certain conditions? It is an aerial picture of antarctica.

To me it looks like docks that have been frozen over. Im pretty sure that is frozen ocean. Isnt it?

My g/f's brother works for Raytheon. He is in the Army Reseve but works for the Navy. All of a sudden he had to go to Antarctica for a month to install some new system there. Hes kind of a jerk so I dont ask him any questions. Are there military bases there? What could possible be of interest there its freezing?


One of my best friends who is an Air Force Special Forces Officer was transferred to Antarctica for 3 months. I asked him why he was going and he said that it was TOP SECRET. I was very suspicious of this. Special Forces is the tough guys, usually to take something out or to protect something valuable. Either way, it is VERY interesting.

Forgive me for being the one to call BS, but I'm a born skeptic, so I've got to check.
Last time I checked, men in scarlet berets were PJs and Air Combat Controllers. The airforce contribution so SOCOM, if I understand correctly, revolves around infil, exfil, combat rescue, psyops, and air traffic controlling. Granted they must need big parachutes to support the kind of cojones it takes to carry out their job, but I've never heard of anyone in the AFSOC with the job description of "tough guys, usually to take something out", unless by "take something out" you mean fly into hell and retrieve other SOGs which have for one reason or another found themselves in a world of hurt.

Maybe Seekerof will happen by; he was a PJ, so if I'm mistaken he'd be the one to set me straight.

I'm not saying for sure that you're lying, I'm just saying that your statement seems suspicious to me because I've been lied to before by others. If I'm mistaken, perhaps you could shed a little light on it by telling me what you can about your friend's job- what unit is he with or something of that nature.

Massive amounts of natural resources. I watched a show not too long ago "Artic Rush" which stated that 1/4 of natural resources left on the planet are in the Artic regions. Countries are in a big rush to lay claim to resource rights. Russia already has a good case for over half of the North Artic. The rest being divided between Canada the US and Sweden I believe.

With Global warming these resources are going to be easier to get and coupled with shrinking supplies around the world they are going to become much mor important.

I am sorry, but i dont belive there is a base of any importance other then for scientific reserch. I cant see them being able to justify the cost, unless it was to get the resorces.

***UPDATE***

I just talked to my g/f brother and he has been making regular trips to the south pole (Antarctica). He has been going every six months or so to deliver supplies there. He said each time he goes there his unit takes 10 million pounds of supplies and equipment.

He also said that the US is building a brand new base there. I guess its going to be huge. I don’t talk to him much so that’s all the details I have. Hopefully someone can corroborate this.

It's not what can be seen from the surface, it's what goes down underneath it that is the interesting stuff.

Bah, rubbish!!!
There's an ancient weapon in Antarctica that SG1 used to destroy Aneubis's fleet that was attacking earth!
Don't you people know anything?


This comment adds nothing to the thread and is completely satirical in nature
No Goa'uld were harmed in the making of this post

Much of the reasons why antarctica is of such interest have to do with the hollow earth theory, and alien technology and research. It would be intersting to see some footage of what all goes on there, but someday we'll know. And, if not...who really cares?

What suprises me is that we all just speculate what may be going on down ( or up ) there. chitter, chatter, what you say? hollow-earth chitter, chatter What you say?? fill pockets with salt?? chitter, chatter. Waht you say?? gray!?. ETC,ETC,ETC.
And no one actualy goes down there to just take a look for them selves!
Why don't you guys Just ask crisonabike to fund your expedition??

Cheers.

According to Alex Collier,

There was a photo that slipped through the cracks and was published in a book called "Our Violent Universe" by Nigel Calder that first released in England. This shows what appears to be an opening (He say's it's proof - but I'm not so sure)

This is also an interesting show with Richard C. Hoagland

I feel the need to post here and clear up a few things. I found the site while looking material for a joke safety presentation at our work center. I work at McMurdo Station in Antarctica. Any admins out there feel free to check the IP.

A) Polies are not people that go to the ice. Polies are specifically people working at the South Pole station. They're very odd people that generally smell funny since they only get to shower once a week due to the lack of fresh water down there.

B) There are 3 main stations here. McMurdo, Palmer, and Amundsen Scott South Pole Station. Palmer is very high in latitude and is home to mostly marine research since it's not completely frozen over all the time. They study Orcas and birds and fish. You get there by flying from the US to Chile and getting on a boat. McMurdo is mostly a supply center, but also a hub for sea ice research. We setup everything needed to supply not only the south pole station, but remote research stations like AGAP and WAIS where people are living in small huts and tents. We some volcanic research (Mt. Erebus), some climate research via the Long Range Ballon project, and various marine research projects. The South Pole does a lot of climate research as well as astronomy due to the clear air, lack of light pollution and 24hr darkness.

C) Raytheon runs the operation through Raytheon Polar Services Company. The jobs are all on www.rayjobs.com. It's mostly boring work. Pay is ok. Why do people come back. There's a lot of fun people down here that go through college dorm life once a year. We have a lot of fun doing what we do.

D) You do fill out a lot of paperwork and go through a lot of medical checks to get here, but there's nothing in our contracts about being hush hush. Most of the paperwork is medical background stuff and there's a criminal background check. You don't sign you life away. We don't sign anything stating we can't talk about we do down here. They actually encourage us to talk about our experience. There have been several film crews down here following scientists around and documenting the work we do on the support side of things.

E) There's tons of pictures of the station and the work we do down here. You can find most people that work down here on MySpace and Facebook. There's lot of Flickr accounts. There's also the official stuff.

interesting to note that when using google earth to view the south pole some locations of interest seem to be restricted for closer view where other locations are very clear in detail rigth down to buildings and transport

one must ask why is resolution limited?
