Travel to the Antarctic with us and explore the high plateaus, the Dry Valleys, and South Pole. This presentation will include several slides of the region, in addition to some stunning, giant satellite photographs. “War stories” will be shared about various research projects and harrowing conditions resulting in cold people, storms, giant crevasses and a plane stuck in a crevasse.
