An antenna, installed by the scientist in Point Barrow, the northern most tip of the US. The Inupiat village of Nuvuk existed at this place more than 1,200 years ago. At the time of the first contacts with European Arctic expeditions in the 1800s, it was the biggest Inupiat village in northern Alaska. Because of shore erosion, which eats away 10–12 metres of land a year, the villagers left Nuvuk and moved to Barrow.
