What's it like to live in Antarctica?

Due to severe weather conditions Antarctica is called "White Mars'. In 2005 a French-Italian research station "Concordia" was built there. 60 people live and work at the station. Let's take a look what their life looks like.



And what do you think about that? Do you have any interesting facts to share? If so, tell us in the comments below, please!

Concordia Research Station, which opened in 2005, is a French–Italian research facility that was built 3,233 m (10,607 ft) above sea level at a location called Dome C on the Antarctic Plateau, Antarctica. It is located 1,100 km (680 mi) inland from the French research station at Dumont D'Urville, 1,100 km (680 mi) inland from Australia's Casey Station and 1,200 km (750 mi) inland from the Italian Zucchelli Station at Terra Nova Bay. Russia's Vostok Station is 560 km (350 mi) away. The Geographic South Pole is 1,670 km (1,040 mi) away. The facility is also located within Australia's claim on Antarctica, the Australian Antarctic Territory.

Vincent D'Souza, Why? So the rich and greedy can destroy it? Leave it to them to figure a way to mine or drill there.

Several years ago there was a posting on Craigslist for Baker's in Antarctica. I almost went, but after reading this I'm so glad I didn't.

I lived in Alaska for almost 4 years, not the coldest part by a long shot. But not for lack of trying, because that I did. I would have liked to try this when I was younger. It would have been interesting for a year at least. I love snow and cold.

I was born on Maui, Hawaii. At age 8 we moved to Chicago. 58 degrees the day we landed in the states. I had never been so cold! 12 years there was enough for my lifetime! I live in Arizona now. 100• today!
