Germany's Neumayer III Antarctic Station to be Deicated Tomorrow
Here is an article about Germany's latest Neumayer station. It seems pretty common for stations to have numbers after them, as they do not always last long and then are replaced by new buildings that are named the same with a new number after them. The latest one is expected to last longer, though, because it is built on hydraulic to help keep it from being buried in snow for a longer period of time than the previous ones. It will be dedicated tomorrow, February 20, 2009, by phone from Berlin by the German Minister of Education and Research, Annette Schavan.
