Virtual Tour - Life at South Pole: Robert's Room
Robert Schwarz (1996-1997 and 1997-1998 winterover) has volunteered
to show us his 1996-1997 room in the Science Building.
(All images on this page courtesy Robert Schwarz.)
He says, "Only one person at a time, there is not much space!"
Please come in.
Here are my 2.87 m x 1.68 m (113in x 66in). But it's nice and it's mine!
It is so dry at the Pole that fire is a constant concern. Because
of the potential of fire, every room has an escape hatch.
Since it's going outside you can use it also as a freezer.
The bed is made out of a PMT crate,
also all the other wood I used is recycled. That's my desk,
to save space it's below the bed.
It's never very far to the other side of the room!
Some postcards on my cupboard.
