Abstract

This is a report of a trip for International Polar Year 2007/2008. Preparations for a trip to the end of the world started months earlier. First was the tedious selection process by the sponsor, Alfred-Wegener-Institute (AWI) for Polar and Ocean Research in Bremerhaven (Germany) followed by an extensive medical exam in July 2006. Special cold resistant clothing had to be tested in the summer heat. Finally, several packs of equipment were shipped ahead to Antarctica. visits to schools participating in the didactical side program and many media contacts followed. On 15 October 2006 the trip started with 22 hours flight to the city of Christchurch (New Zealand) which hosts the logistic center of the U.S. and N.Z. Antarctic research. - (IfL)
