scenes from Antarctica

Thank you! show some love!

Down in Antarctica, November marks the end of spring, the beginning of austral summer, and the beginning of Antarctica’s cruise season. The Sun just rose for the first time in 6 months on September 22nd, and is now visible in the sky all the time. Recent studies in Antarctica have brought new insights into the origins of deep sea octopus species (a 30 million-year-old ancestor from Antarctic waters), volcanic contributions to disappearing antarctic ice, and the effects of increasing numbers of icebergs scouring the seafloor. Collected here are 32 photographs of Antarctica from the past several years. (32 photos total)

  1. Am inceput sa revad postarile mai vechi si asta mi-a placut tare mult. In special prima fotografie… sau cea cu Calea Lactee. adevarul e ca te poti simti pe alta planeta, chiar si de pe Terra.
    intrebare: Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station e baza cea mai sudica de pe pamant?
