Tom Pi and Adam Rein, construction workers employed by Raytheon Polar Services, work on the new elevated station at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Outdoor construction workers must work in temperatures around -35F during the austral summer. They routinely work outside for about an hour and then go indoors to warm up for a few minutes before returning outside. The new station is due for completion in 2007-2008.
