What Is It Like Living In Halley Research StationLiving at Halley Research Station is not like our lives its very different and heres why.

At Halley You cant go to the toilet as easy as it is here instead you have to bring a plastic bag and an empty bottle.Well what are you supposed to do?

Also at this station you of course would have to wear at least 11 to 12 layers of clothes or else you will freeze.

Most people love the grass and even just walking in the bush! But how could you do that in Antarctica theres no grass, trees, roads you cant even go to the shops wearing flip-flops.

You cant even call your friends!!!So you might become Lonely at times.But Living there is also good in its own ways:

Like you know how everyone says New York is the city that never sleeps . What about Antarctica? The Sun never Sets in Summer and in Winter the Sun Never Rises. So then if you go there and come back you can tell people I have seen the sun in the middle of the sky at midnight.

12In Conclusion,I chose Halley Research Station because of its design and its studies.Halley is an Antarctic Research Station and I hope you enjoyed listening to some Cool facts about this station..
