Scott Base in Antarctica

Scott Base in Antarctica

Scott Base in 2006.

Scott Base, New Zealand's permanent Antarctic research station, officially opened on 20 January 1957 as part of New Zealand's commitment to the Trans Antarctic Expedition (1955-58) and International Geophysical Year (1957-58). Since this time Scott Base has physically changed. The most significant change occurred when the complex was completely reconstructed between 1977 and 2005. Many of the original huts were destroyed but ‘A’ Hut and two others used during the IGY remain.
