Question 7: How cold is it?
It's summertime here, so it's pretty warm. In the middle of summer at the South Pole, it can get up to -15 degrees and in the middle of winter it can get down to -80 degrees. Right now it's between -20 and -30. In just a few weeks, the temperature will be around -50 degrees. When it's that cold, airplanes cannot land here, so anyone who is still at the South Pole station will have to stay here until October. I'm definitely going to leave before then!
