Increased Antarctic airlift capability contributes to science

Passengers from McMurdo Station, Antarctica, prepare to load a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III during Operation Deep Freeze (ODF), July 15, 2016 at Pegasus Ice Runway, Antarctica. ODF is unlike any other U.S. military operation. Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, most inhospitable continent on the globe. Conditions are continuously monitored due to the unpredictable and quick-changing weather at the bottom of the world to ensure safety of aircraft, ships, cargo, passengers and crews while deployed in support of ODF.
