Welcome back, Polar Ponder players. . .
Last week’s polar ponder question was, ”why do you think most of the buildings at Palmer are made of metal?”
If you didn’t answer, you’re ice cold.
If you said, “I think it has something to do with safety,” you’re getting warmer.
If you said, “most of the buildings at Palmer Station are made of metal so they won’t burn easily,” or “so that a fire won’t spread from building to building,” you’re red hot!
Also, John in maintenance tells me that it’s just plain easier to ship the metal down to Antarctica.
So, there you have it, another polar ponder mystery — asked and answered.
Thanks for playing along!
