Okay, now that I have your attention with that time capsule statement, here's the rest of the story. Above...the contents of the base of the dome comms radio desk, which had been constructed by the 1992 winterovers...and they left some stuff inside. Totally undocumented until it was discovered during the 2006 winter comms demo (LS) (more information).
But this is about the gym, which was still not quite finished until the 2007 winter. Mainly because of the snow ramp and temporary double doors at the south end, left over from construction. They'd remained until 2006-07 for access to move large items into and out of the station.
|Finally it was time to finish the last remaining construction of the new station...the south wall of the gym, enclosing the large level 1 closet, it's two double doors, the contents of the 1992 comms time capsule...|
This was actually a new time capsule from a Girl Scout group in Greenfield, NY. I'm hoping someone can share the story about it (JW).
As far as I know, this is the second of three "time capsules" hidden away in the elevated station (not counting all of those artifacts in the ice tunnels). The first one was emplaced in one of the station foundation beams in January 2002. The newest one is inside this. And as far as I know, none of these are documented by any sort of plaque or sign.
But you know where they are.
