China to Build 3rd Antarctic Research Station

China already has two stations in Antarctica. They have now announced that they will build a third one. It is planned to be built in two years on Dome A, which is Antarctica's highest ice cap. I find it interesting that the people to go there in October are already going acclimation training in Tibet. It just seems odd that acclimation training is being seen important enough to begin so early. You can find the article about this new base here.
