Week 22 at the Pole

Last week at the Pole, IceCube’s winterovers spent much of their time on a major troubleshooting task. Wait…wasn’t that the previous week? Well, sometimes issues can take a while to iron themselves out. Even with continued troubleshooting work, the winterovers had time last week for other station activities, like power plant watch and emergency response training. The week ended with an open mic night in the galley, where station personnel had an opportunity to show off their talents.
