Antarctic Research

Antarctica is the perfect place to study space because of the dry, cold, and stable atmosphere. Scientists here are able to see further and learn more than anywhere else on the planet. The research here is teaching us more about the sun, solar flares, and how to predict and prepare for outer space dangers to earth. This research does not come without challenges however. The environment is one of the harshest on the planet. Keeping scientists safe, supplied, and connected during the long winter months makes research dangerous and emotionally challenging to workers.

Wildlife

Though it might seem like nothing could survive in a place as isolated and harsh environment, there is abundant wildlife in Antarctica. From the tiny krill that form the bottom of the food chain to the giant whales that eat the krill; there are creatures of every shape and size on this icy continent. Numerous seabirds from giant Albatross to the Yellow-billed Pintail make Antarctica their nesting ground. Penguins live in Antarctica year round. They face the harshest winter on earth and raise their young in the midst of it. Seals, whales, and fish all build the network of wildlife at the South Pole.
