Being a researcher trapped in the cold and desolate Arctic just got a little more bearable. The newly designed Halley VI Antarctic research station will open next week and it has some cool features. Since fixed structures typically struggle on the frigid continent due to moving ice and the threat of snow-burial, it can move.
Using legs. That’s right, the Halley VI has extendable legs that allow it to keep rising above snow level and it can be towed to a new location as needed. There are eight pods which connect together, each is a research area slash living quarters.
The larger, central red cabin is a communal living area that can use specially selected shades, has a climbing wall and a herb garden, Pretty awesome habitat.
