Today's visitor may be sheltered in a warm centrally heated cocoon, but outside people face the same physical dangers as Scott or Amundsen. Despite these hardships, Antarctica is an exhilarating environment. The grandeur of its landscapes and the wonder of its wildlife evoke intense emotional response, not only from visitors, but from fascinated scientists, scholars and other global citizens captivated by the images they bring back. Antarctica challenges our scientific understanding with some of the most complex problems of the past and the future of our planet. Within its icy mantle it holds the key to many secrets, from the geological structure of the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana to the impact of global warming."@en ;
