Talking Antarctica

Click on this link and go to the McMurdo Mobile Camera. You'll see a live shot of our US flag heavylift vessel "Ocean Giant" at the Ice Pier in McMurdo. Temp is 1 deg F. She is there on a resupply mission. She has 2 cranes each capable of lifting 400 metric tons, combinable to lift pcs weighing up to 800 metric tons. Pretty cool, huh? (pun intended).
