Time at the South Pole

There is a research station at the south pole (manned by the US?).

What is the local time there? All time zones converge at the poles so I assume its Washington time.

Presumably they use GMT. That would make things simpler for scientists.

Apparently there are no hard and fast rules: http://www.statoids.com/taq.html

I sent a similar question to Cecil once. “What time is it at the North Pole”

It never got answered. :frowning:

The South Pole runs on the same time zone as New Zealand, since most incoming flights come from there. See here. Other places in Antarctica would, I assume, use their longitude to determine their time zone; but obivously this wouldn’t work for the South Pole.
