They can store food in large containers on the street.
Great discoveries happen as a result of two things: either there is some kind of incredible coincidence, or people are making a huge effort. And, in General, one does not exclude the other. And so you understand how big may be the price discovery, we will tell you about the guys with the research station Concordia in Antarctica, informs Rus.Media.
Recently, widely dispersed over the Internet photo with a plate of frozen noodles, which drew attention to the 13 brave souls who live in Antarctica. Some of the scientists, the technicians, the doctor and the cook are engaged in various research related to the climate of our planet and human survival in the harsh natural conditions.
And in Antarctica, the conditions are very harsh: in summer the temperature reaches 30 degrees and in winter does -80 Celsius. Throw in the thin air and the conditions are very similar to lunar or Martian.
Fun fact: the ISS, which is 400 km above the Earth’s surface, much closer to civilization than station “Concordia”. But it allows people in Antarctica from time to time to observe the truly fantastic scenery.
One of the scientists, Cyprien Verso, deals with the study of past climate, which should enable us to predict changes in the future. When Verso is not busy with scientific work, he maintains a blog on Twitter, and that is where the famous image of noodles.
After the picture became super popular, Cyprien shared with the users of their grief – the Concordia is not possible to eat on the go.
The harsh Antarctic will not allow you to make even scrambled eggs!
However, scientists understand what a great contribution to science can make them work, so not really complaining.
In his spare time, the team of like-minded loves to have fun, regularly held fancy dress parties, people playing basketball, and occasionally live broadcasts, answering the students ‘ questions.
And there’s no fun here any way. For example, in winter, Concordia is no communication with the outside world. Because four months into the year people have to eat only frozen foods, the benefit of the continent allows you to store food in large containers on the street.
Next time you complain about the cold, remember the brave 13 who inhabit the science station “Concordia”. In General, these guys can put the example in any situation, because they do not lose the power of the spirit and perform the important work being almost on another planet, as they themselves admit.
