Explorations in the Frozen World: Antarctica URL: http://www.march.es/conferencias/anteriores/voz.aspx?p1=100194&l=2

Few regions of the planet have resisted the curiosity of human beings so tenaciously like the Arctic and Antarctica. Their natural settings, ravaged by an extreme climate that negates even the slightest recourse to life, have played host to the bitter struggle of generations of explorers to sketch the contours of such inhospitable lands and obtain trophies full of symbolisms: the poles. This lecture will discuss these men, whose professionalism and efforts helped to write some of the most epic pages in the history of exploration. In particular, it will focus on Antarctica, given that it was on the ice of this continent that the most spectacular race in the history of explorations took place.
