Ny-Ålesund

, Norway. It is situated on the Brøgger peninsula (Brøggerhalvøya) and on the shore of the bay of Kongsfjorden. The company town is owned and operated by Kings Bay (Kings Bay (company)), who provide facilities for permanent research institutes from ten countries. The town is ultimately owned by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (Ministry of Trade and Industry (Norway)) and is not incorporated. Ny-Ålesund has an all-year permanent population of 30 to 35, with the summer population

reaching 120. Its facilities include Ny-Ålesund Airport, Hamnerabben, Svalbard Rocket Range, a port and Ny-Ålesund Town and Mine Museum, as well as fifteen permanent research stations. It's the northernmost civilian settlement in the world. The town was founded in 1917 by Peter Brandal and his mining company, Kings Bay Kull Comp. Initially mining was carried out until 1929, but it was unprofitable for most of the 1920s. There were a series of air expeditions launched from Ny

-Ålesund towards the North Pole. The company was nationalized in 1933 and the town was for some years used for tourism and as a fishing port. Mining resumed for some months in 1941 and then from 1945. After several fatal accidents, a mining accident on 5 November 1962 killed 21 miners. In what became the Kings Bay Affair, mining was terminated and Gerhardsen's Third Cabinet resigned. Kongsfjord Telemetry Station opened in 1967 and the town gradually transformed

. History Boundaries The county of Hants was created June 17, 1781, and consisted of the townships of Windsor, Falmouth and Newport. Originally getting its name from the English county of Hampshire, abbreviated to Hants from the Old English name ''Hantescire'', the County was established out of part of what had been Kings County (Kings County, Nova Scotia). The words of the minutes of the Council of Nova Scotia for June 17, 1781 make it clear that the distance from

Horton (Horton, Nova Scotia) (the County town of Kings County) and the inconvenience of crossing the Avon River to transact county business were factors which led to a separate county being formed.
