Eating al fresco at the South Pole


The researchers at Concordia Station, one of the most remote places on the planet at about 1,000 miles from the Geographic South Pole, must get bored. And cold. (Currently, it is -72ºF there.) So the scientists took some of their food outside to demonstrate what happens to it at such temperatures. Roughly translated, the tweet above says that “maybe eating lunch on the roof wasn’t a great idea.” [Kate Bernot]
