Happy New Year from the South Pole! The Antarctic ice sheet moves 10-meters per year, so there is an annual ceremony to move the Geographic South Pole marker. The winter machinist makes a new marker each year, which is first revealed at the ceremony #newyears #southpole pic.twitter.com/MNkkjQcIO9

I’m not at the South Pole this year, but can still share the festivities. Looking forward to another 97 wins by the efforts of 237 anonymous and fungible pitching units (PUs).
