Concordia - Research Station At The End Of The Worldimage credit
These pictures could easily be publicity stills from a new science fiction blockbuster set on an ice bound planet circling a distant sun. It is, however, the Concordia Research Station which is located on the Antarctic Plateau in Antartcica - the largest desert in the world. It is one of only three research stations on the plateau to operate permanently on a year round basis.
