Day Thirty-Seven -- Mawson Station

Picture One

 

Gordon was all set to take us to Mawson on a helicopter flight, but some problems with the helicopter meant that we couldn't go - see the special report Mawson Operations. Gordon has done the flight before so here are some pictures from an earlier trip. This one is from the helicopter looking down on the Aurora Australis in the fast ice about 150 nautical miles from Mawson.

Is a nautical mile different from a mile on the land?
