Presented for the first time at the Museum of Natural History in London, the exhibition attracted 200.000 visitors and continued to Spain and Turkey. Antarctica is the most remote place on Earth and the coldest.
The exhibition, which covers an area of 700 square meters, reveals the mystery of this region through various sources. Visitors have a once-in-a-lifetime experience of this wild place and get the feeling of what survival is like in the snow-covered expanse. Ice Station Antarctica — Photo courtesy of Hellenic Cosmos
Ideal for schools and families, with innovative design and technology, the exhibition fascinates spectators with information on the effect of the temperature on human behavior and other topics. At the virtual educational station, visitors face freezing temperatures, drive snowmobiles, dive into the frozen sea and study the wildlife.
Daily life is also presented with interactive models, information diagrams, visual data, labs, plants, fossils, maps and scientific instruments. Visitors are challenged to prove if they have the capacity to work and survive in the frozen element. Can you live with wild animals? Dive into the frozen sea? Drive a snowmobile? Camp in the open? Live for two months in darkness? The answers are there, waiting to be discovered.
