Ships at McMurdo

This is the Oden, a Swedish icebreaker hired to come break a channel from the open water to McMurdo and to assist our re-supply ship and tanker in getting here.
This is the fuel tanker the Gianella at the Ice pier. It just finished offloading six million gallons of fuel this morning.
This is the Nathaniel B. Palmer. It's a research ship run by Raytheon Polar Services for the U.S. Antarctic Program. Our friend Corey from Hobart just boarded on Monday and will be working on the ship for the next month.
