Danger! Science!

Sat 04 Oct

3.45pm – 4.45pm, Free

Antarctica tests scientists to the extreme – from tall crevassed glaciers to the volcanically explosive flanks of Mt Erebus, Antarctic science is not for the faint hearted. Hear from the mountaineers whose specialist skills are critical to the safety and success of this research. Listen to tales of ski-dooing over crevasses, descending into volcanic fumaroles and just surviving in the freezing extremes of Antarctica.
