You're reading: Meanwhile in Antarctica

To mark this occasion, British Prime Minister David Cameron sent an audio message to the scientists and support staff at British bases in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.

You can read more about the Prime Minister’s message here; and more about Captain Scott and his ill-fated expedition here (some great links at this site). For real exploration (and film) buffs, I recommend the re-released 1924 film “The Great White Silence”, which I watched recently with great pleasure.

Ukraine and the United Kingdom have a terrific record of cooperation in Antarctica. In 1994, Ukraine was admitted to the Scientific Committee of Antarctic Research, with the active support of the UK.
