This week on Futureproof, we spoke about one of the coldest, darkest, most unforgiving climates on this planet, and how a team of explorers and scientists plan to spend their winter there.
Medical doctor and explorer Mike Stroud joined us by satellite phone from the research vessel SA Agulhas to tell us about The Coldest Journey, an ambitious trip across Antarctica with polar explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Mike is an expert on human health under extreme conditions, and so will have a unique research opportunity with this first ever winter trip across Antarctica.
Mike spoke to us about the challenges of this dark cold journey, as well as what we stand to learn about the human body. You can find out more about The Coldest Journey here.
