Short documentary about Kharkovchanka, huge Antarctic off-road vehicles made by the Soviets

I was thinking of picking up an old Hilux but one of these will do. Calum G: "Russia's Colossal Antarctic Cruisers which have been continuously operating in some of the most extreme environments on Earth for over 50 years. Produced in Kharkiv, Ukrainian Soviet Socialistic Republic and originally operated by USSR, the 'Харьковчанка' (literally 'Kharkiv Women'), these amazing Snow Cruisers were built in the late 1950s and featured everything a polar explorer could need in the field. In their ha...

South Pole warming three times faster than rest of Earth: study

The South Pole has warmed three times faster than the rest of the planet in the last 30 years due to warmer tropical ocean temperatures, new research showed Monday. Antarctica's temperature varies widely according to season and region, and for years it had been thought that the South Pole had stayed cool even as the continent heated up. Researchers in New Zealand, Britain and the United States analysed 60 years of weather station data and used computer modelling to show what was causing the ac...

Antarctica reaches record high temperature

The frozen continent recently logged its warmest temperature to date, a whopping 65 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s quite a leap from its previous record of about 63 degrees Fahrenheit, set five years ago in 2015. The reading was documented at the Argentine research base of Esperanza and will soon be verified by the United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization (WMO). “Everything we have seen thus far indicates a likely legitimate record. But we will, of course, begin a formal evaluation of the ...

Graham McTavish Watt

The only person to ever have guest blogged here is Graham Watt, a friend for almost 20 years. I met Graham as I was beginning my freelance career in 2003.

Graham was semi-retired when I met him and we had many conversations on various topics over the years. Here are some of his words that he shared with me. Graham died last night. I will miss him.

Carrie’s Top 10 Non Fiction Books of 2019

Most people know I’m passionate about reading and recommending books that are thought-provoking. Reading across many genres is a lifelong habit, but today’s post is about one of my favorite genres: non-fiction. Why read non fiction? It’s important to learn across a range of topics and to read alternating points of views to get a well rounded idea of the subject matter. This year I included history, science and technology, law, women’s studies, the human body, and biographies. One of the rea...

What Earth might look like in 80 years if we're lucky — and if we're not

Last year was the warmest year on record for the planet's oceans, and the fourth-warmest year ever in terms of surface temperature. That warming trend has continued into 2019: July was the hottest month ever in Earth's history.  Scientists are also discovering that melting in Greenland and Antarctica is occurring much faster than they previously thought. These changes could spell disaster for coastal economies in the form of sea-level rise and more frequent (and intense) natural disasters like...

When is the Best Time to Go to Antarctica?

Antarctica holds the top spot in most of the traveler’s bucket list. It’s one of the toughest regions on earth. In the hot summer months, the population swells to 2,000 and drops to as few as 40 people during the winter months. Seeing the facts, the best time to go to Antarctica is the summer without much choice. It’s not recommended to visit the South Pole during the winter times. Nobody goes there for the rest of the year except for people who are on a scientific expedition. Although the avera...

These are the deepest and largest man-made holes in the world

Since the early 1960s, humans have attempted to drill down to the Earth's mantle. Russia holds the record for the deepest man-made hole in the world at more than 40,000 feet deep. That's 7.6 miles. No one has ever reached the Earth's mantle, although scientists have never given up trying to get to it. Some of the other deepest man-made holes are from oil companies, while some of the largest holes have been dug to extract copper and diamonds. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. ...
