Lasts checks. We have packed everything, all the instruments are working and most of the biological samples are in conditions to be sent to Italy for the deepest analysis. For the first time this year thanks to new installed technology, it will be possible to control the instruments through the internet address of the different systems directly from everywhere in the world. This facilities is still in testing phase, so it's not free accessible for each one!!! Maybe in the next future !!!
Unfortunately, at lunch time, the expedition leader communicated to the people leaving Antarctica on the 2nd of February (26 person including me) the impossibility to perform the transfer to McMurdo (as it was 25 days ago for the arrival) since the weather conditions were not good. So we have to wait. Probably for 2/3 days.
For kindly concession of the Italian Program for Antarctic Research (PNRA)
