[NOTE] Welcome

The New South Polar Times is a newsletter written by the staff of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, South Pole, Antarctica. Founded by Katie Wallet, of Spotsylvania County Schools, and Lt. Tom Jacobs -- NOAA's officer-in-charge at Amundsen-Scott, this Internet newsletter provides students and teachers around the world with information on Antarctica, the scientific research taking place there, and fun facts about life at the station.

The title, The New South Polar Times, was suggested by Lt. Jacobs and named for the first newsletter to be written in the Antarctic, The South Polar Times. The South Polar Times was a newsletter for and by the men on Robert Scott's ship, The Discovery, written during Scott's first expedition to Antarctica, July 1901- September 1904. It was on his second expedition to the Antarctic that Scott lost the race to the South Pole to Roald Amundsen by just 34 days. The station at the South Pole is named for these two brave men.

We hope you will find this newsletter a jumping off point for studying the fascinating continent of Antarctica. If you have any suggestions for this newsletter, please send them to Katie Wallet at kwallet@erols.com. If you have any questions about Antarctica or the south pole, please e-mail Pat Reitelbach at preitelbach@erols.com.
