"Akademik Vernadsky", Ukrainian Antarctic Station (in 2000)

Vernadsky Research Base ("Akademik Vernadsky") is a Ukrainian Antarctic Station at Marina Point on Galindez Island in the Argentine Islands, Antarctica.

The station was established by the British Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey as Base F or "Argentine Islands" on Winter Island in 1947.The main hut, built on the site of an earlier British Graham Land Expedition hut, was named "Wordie House" after Sir James Wordie, a member of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition who visited during its construction.[1]

Wordie House has been restored and is designated as Historic Site and Monument No. 62.[2]The base moved to the present site on adjacent Galindez Island in May 1954 where the main building was named "Coronation House".

The base was renamed Faraday Station in August 1977 in honour of British scientist Michael Faraday.[3]

Ukraine took over the operation of the base in February 1996.[3] The Ukrainian Antarctic Center continue a programme of meteorology, upper atmospheric physics, geomagnetism, ozone, seismology, glaciology, ecology, biology and physiology research.[4]

The station consists of nine buildings standing on rock foundations.A 1961 extension at the east end of the hut provided living quarters for 15 people.Major alterations in 1980 updated the living and working accommodation.A two-storey extension provides sleeping accommodation for 24 people, a clothing store, boiler room and reverse osmosis plant on the ground floor.Upstairs are a lounge, library, dining room and kitchen.The old part of the building is now mostly laboratories and work rooms, together with the surgery and washrooms.The generator shed was erected in 1978-79, with the old one now used as a frozen food store and a carpenter's workshop.Other buildings include two non-magnetic buildings, a balloon launching shed (now skidoo garage), and a general store.[1]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
