    iʹm sorry, i donʹt know where this should go, so iʹll give this topic a shot.i am wondering what the status is of the old come at south pole, and what will become of it once the demolition is completely. apparently some years back, there was some talk of itʹs becoming part of a museum somewhere.does anybody knowʔthanks for your patience with a newbieǃ <ǃ-- s:d -->ʹʹ:dʹʹ<ǃ-- s:d -->angie

    i assume you mean “dome” and not “comms,” which is demoʹd and gone.status of the dome is undecided. the current official plan, near as i can tell, is to pull the dome apart and send it to the seabees museum in california (i think). but with current construction and other priorities it might be a few years before itʹs removed. many of us who actually spend time here think it should be relocated back to a surface spot and converted into warehouse space. it would retain itʹs iconish status and serve a useful purpose. but people who donʹt spend time here dealing with the mess of cargo everywhere are making the decisions.

    thanks, yeah, i meant the dome. iʹm glad to hear that itʹs still there. it sure seemed to me that yʹall could use the storage space from what iʹve read. the new base looks heavenly by comparison, but somehow that dome is supposed to be there…i work for the gov, and yes, practicality never seems to enter into decision making. however, inertia does, and since it would consume lots of resources to knock it apart and move it, hopefully it will keep getting moved to the back burner until the bureaucrats just forget about it.thanks for your replyǃangie in texas, us

    if by “heavenly” you mean like an office complex in denver … itʹs comfortable — and sterile — like a cubicle

    iʹm such a weenie; i was thinking about physical temperature. but i have great faith in you guys — youʹll decorate it appropriatelyǃ it just takes a while to get the feel of the place. <ǃ-- s:) -->ʹʹ:)ʹʹ<ǃ-- s:) -->meanwhile, iʹm not as worried about yʹall as i have been — worried that your feet will freeze while you sleep and your toes will fall off.hmmm….does that go along with polar bears and eskimosʔ <ǃ-- s:d -->ʹʹ:dʹʹ<ǃ-- s:d -->angie in texas, us
