In this book, an attempt is made to synthesize and convey to the reader the integral world of Antarctica - a cold, ice-bound, uninhabited, still little-studied region. It extends to the continent of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean with many islands. Immerse yourself in a journey through the amazing world of ice and snow with unique views of the region, unusual adventures of people, stories of desperate pioneers, incredible scientific research, threatening global problems, the beauty of wildlife, vivid sensations while traveling on the ocean.
The book is based on the living impressions of the author, who fulfilled his big dream and went on an exciting journey to the Ukrainian station "Akademik Vernadsky" in Antarctica. The text is filled with a lot of information related to the continent. You will find a lot: from how people found the southern land 200 years ago to how they got to the continent in our time; from picturesque descriptions of the surrounding world in Antarctica to explanations of complex processes that directly affect every inhabitant of the planet.
