Microbes thrive below Antarctic ice. A hint of life elsewhere in solar system? | Antarctica | Scoop.it
The discovery of bacteria in an ice-bound lake bolsters the case that similar life could exist elsewhere in the solar system. But on Earth, the find raises the prospect that Antarctic melting will release greenhouse gases.

Infographic: Explore the Aurora Australis

Infographic: Explore the Aurora Australis | Antarctica | Scoop.it
The Aurora Australis has been at the centre of Australia's research in Antarctic since the super icebreaker was launched in 1990. Explore the ship by clicking on different levels and rooms in the interactive infographic above. Australia's Antarctic flagship has purpose-built facilities for marine science and oceanographic research and boasts the ability to tackle whatever the South Ocean throws at it - navigating 10-metre seas, ploughing on through winds of up to 150 kilometres an hour and cutting its way through sea ice. The ship can accommodate up to 140 people, meaning that on a six-week voyage its kitchen can go through 4,500 eggs, 1,000 kilograms of potatoes and 280 litres of ice cream.

Canmore author Stephen Bown rediscovers greatest Arctic explorer, Roald Amundsen

Canmore author Stephen Bown rediscovers greatest Arctic explorer, Roald Amundsen | Antarctica | Scoop.it
When researching his new book Stephen Bown found no shortage of material about Roald Amundsen, the eccentric and driven Norwegian explorer who was the first to conquer both the South and North Poles. For months, Bown’s Canmore home was filled with piles of papers that he had photocopied from the New York Times digital archives. Over the first 20 years of the 20th Century, the Gray Lady printed more than 400 stories about Amundsen. If they weren’t writing about his adventures during the so-called “Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration,” they would focus on his lectures, his larger-than-life persona or, eventually, his spectacular 1928 death somewhere in the Barents Sea.
