I say he wouldn't believe it.
Its crazy really to think just how far technology has come in just 30 years!!!!
My father worked at Mawson in 1983/84 and my mother was not able to hear from him for the whole year!!! And here I am having a chat with someone on the other side of the world from the bottom of the world!!
