“Guardian journalists Alok Jha and Laurence Topham are on board the MV Akademik Shokalskiy as part of the 2013-2014 Australasian Antarctic Expedition, which commemorates the centenary of the first AAE led by Sir Douglas Mawson. Follow their blog for full interactive and multimedia coverage as AAE scientists repeat Mawson’s pioneering measurements to record how the eastern Antarctic has changed in the last 100 years.” (The Guardian)
Antarctica Live is a really interesting blog by the Guardian, and well worth following. Alok Jha and Laurence Topham are aboard the expedition, and if you follow either one on Twitter, you will have seen some great videos and images. Some of my favourites include the sunrise in Antarctica. These photographs are stunning, showing the stark beauty of the sea and ice, as well as how cold it is out there!
Would you go on an expedition like that? Onwards!
