Exploration - Sir Vivian Fuchs - Antarctic Pictures - Southampton
Pictures taken 200 miles above the Antarctic by the American satellite Essa 3 are shown by pipe smoking Sir Vivian Fuchs, Director of the British Antarctic Survey, to Captain Anders Jacobsen, Master of the Perla Dan, at Southampton. Sir Vivian was meeting the ship on her arrival with 18 scientists and technicians who had been working at British bases in the Antarctic for 2 and half years. He said the satellite pictures had been of tremendous help in guiding the Perla Dan and the John Biscoe through ice by radio from London. They were assembled by the Americans and sent to the Survey's London headquarters, from where navigational advice was radioed direct to the ships.
