90° South at the geographical South Pole

The real South Pole marked by the metal marker. In the background you see the markers of previous years. The whole icecap is moving about 2,5 cm (1 in) per day, so every year the Pole is resurveyed and marked with a new Pole marker.

The official Pole marker from 1996.

The ceremonial Pole with the flags of the countries who signed the Antarctic treaty 1957.

No wind, that happens not very often.

The wind is back, ASTRO and MAPO in the background.

Some of the obligatory pictures from South Pole.

Ooops, I just removed the earth axis.

At the bottom (or top) of the world.

The earth is turning around - here.
