To get a better view of the Ice Base and the surrounding area, Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop sends up a HD video camera attached to a helium balloon to get an aerial view of the camp and the surrounding area. You can see that the tents are set out in a long line. This is to prevent snow drifts building up and affecting other tents downwind.
