Rothera Station on Adelaide Island (67 34 S; 68 08W). Rothera is the home base of the British Antarctic Survey, with a current population of 77. Each year LM GOULD calls at Rothera for a day of scientific collaboration and a big party at night. This year the visit coincided with a celebration of Scottish poet Robert Burns' birthday.
