... in war the screams are loud and harsh and in peace the wail is so drawn-out we tell ourselves we hear nothing.

There are cooks, janitors, and other support staff 'living' in Antarctica. Nobody stays very long, it's more like a remote oil rig.

There's one guy who stays all "winter" at the South Pole to tend a telescope that needs liquid helium topped up regularly. He likes being alone I guess. Or maybe halitosis?

Some countries send their staff to the Ice for 18 months or two years.  There are a lot of people that repeat every summer for specialist  work.  Some people seem to live there.

Mind you, even the seals and penguins spend a lot of time offshore.

Last I checked Purdue sent a team down there every year. I worked removing matrix when I was a student. The rule was "stop when you see something interesting." Bit frustrating.
