Cyprian Versace is an avalanche expert and astronomer who currently operates at the Concordia station in Antarctica, the world’s most remote scientific site.
When not busy assembling samples or doing research on climate in the past, Verseux has a blog to give his knowledge of living in that extreme environment. Verseux and a small collection of scientists are all simply in the depths of the Antarctic winter. Even bacteria cannot live there.
“Nine months a year, in the winter, it is impracticable to leave it or not,” Cyprian said. “It’s too cold, vehicles can’t come and go. We currently have 13 characters: technicians, scientists, a cook, and a healing doctor.”
Both oxygen and barren, desert terrain make scientists seem like they live on another planet. “This is the coolest part of the earth. In winter, temperatures are below -80 below C,” explained Cyprian. “Three months later, in August, we saw the sun again. The air was very dry and bad for oxygen.”
The work of Cyprian and his fellow scientists is important because it reveals how the climate has changed in the past and provides insight into future changes.
Just for fun, Verseux decided to go out and cook for a while, taking pictures of a wide variety of dishes. It is only a game; However, gravity-defying images clearly illustrate the total energy of the cold in Antarctica, which is not a tourist!
