An update from the field:
“The group moved by Twin Otter from the English base of Rothera to the remote camp of LARISSA Site B on the glacier. Working in the polar night they installed the camp. They recovered, by using a ski-doo, some equipment that was left from a previous flight 15 km from the camp.
They started to drill the ice field and they quickly reached 140 m of depth. Unfortunately, the drill was lost shortly after because the cable got broken. Now they are trying to get the spare drill from the Rothera base and they hope to start to drill soon.”
