The Best Journey in the World: Recounting a Quarter-Century of Travels to Antarctica
Antarctica, climate change, science, penguins
Astrophysicist France Córdova will recount highlights from four trips to Antarctica and the South Pole between 1996 and 2020 on behalf of the U.S. Government. She will show us what it’s like to visit (and find adventure) in Antarctica, and describe the nature of the science conducted in various locations there. The talk includes photos and videos of the “crystal desert,” remote research sites and scientific facilities, the huts of the early 20th century Antarctica explorers, and the noisy penguin rookeries. She will end with a discussion of policy imperatives for the continent.
