NASA Mike's Adventures in McMurdo, Antarctica, Summer 1995-1996

While working as a PC-Tech[nician] (and all-around technical fix-it-monkey) for Antarctic Support Associates at McMurdo Station Antarctica, I worked with a guy from NASA known to everyone as NASA Mike (Comberiate). This video is a rough-cut compilation of NASA and space-related activities happening at McMurdo Station Antarctica around December of 1994. It includes the assembly, successful testing and later wind-failure of a high-power VHF communications antenna, preparations for a long-duration high-altitude balloon launch, and the tracking of the launch of the NOAA-J satellite.
