What do magnetometers, snowmobiles, and penguins all share for all intents and purpose?
Each can be found going all out at the Ukrainian Akademik Vernadsky Research Base, an Antarctic logical focus broadly acclaimed for its environmental change research examines.
The present Doodle commends this noteworthy station, which formally moved from British to Ukrainian control on this day in 1996.
Situated on the little island of Galindez in the Antarctic Circle, the Vernadsky station is the immediate replacement to the British Faraday base, which was first settled as a meteorological observatory in 1947.
Today, the Vernadsky station is worked by a pivoting staff of twelve winterers.
For around ten months all at once, each winterer bears extraordinary disengagement (there isn’t a town inside 1,000 nautical miles!) and freezing temperatures, all for the sake of logical advancement.
At the point when they aren’t occupied with planning for endeavors into the Antarctic wild, the base’s staff work all year to keep up the station and lead research on everything from penguin populaces to the environmental impacts of bright radiation.
Cheers to every individual who keeps their cool at the Vernadsky base, thank you for assisting with giving a superior comprehension of our evolving planet!
