Antarctica: India's Journey to the Frozen Continent

S.Z. Qasim (Author) Dinabandhu Sahoo (Author)

Antarctica, a land of mystery and wonders, is the Earths last great wilderness. Fifty million years back, it had evergreen forests with many types of animals and plants. Today, the continent is a white desert -the coldest, driest, stormiest, windiest and the most inaccessible place in the world. A continent of extremes with nearly six months of continuous day and about six months of continuous night, its lowest temperature of -89.6°C and wind speeds up to 190 km per hour during blizzards make it a unique place on Earth. This no-mans continent has nearly 90 per cent of the worlds freshwater deposit in the form of ice.

Indias journey to this remote and isolated continent began in search of knowledge and for unraveling its mystery.
