Events & exhibitions
27 February 2013 - 18 May 2013
"After all, to go into outer space is not so much worse, if at all, than a polar expedition. Men go on polar expeditions." H.G. Wells 'The First Men in the Moon', 1901.
The Polar Museum premiers Frozen Worlds, an exhibition that explores the links between polar exploration and science on Earth, and the exploration of other ice worlds in our Solar System.
Find out about how scientists investigate life in the polar extremes to understand what life may be present within Europa, one of Jupiter's moons, or Mars. Learn about experiments in Antarctica to test space suits for use on other planets, and how human adaptation to the extreme conditions at the Poles are an analogue to the challenges faced by astronauts.
Join us to explore some of the most inhospitable places in the universe.
