This Antarctic summer two teams flew Paparazzi driven UAS on the southernmost continent. The University of Bergen flew at the Norwegian Troll station (video) and the University of Colorado near the US McMurdo station (blog, blog). They measured temperature, humidity, pressure, infrared radioation and wind. A descripton of the aircraft is here.

Looks like fun. Is it global warming or do they normally wear t-shirts at the South Pole?

You'd be surprised of the temperatures one may feel are balmy once you acclimatize. I'm guessing the summertime temperature pictured above may have been around -20 °C, which is no biggie if you've spent some time there. :)
