Image of the Week — Greetings from Antarctica

Christmas greetings from people at Rothera Research Station, Adelaide Island, Antarctica.

Rothera, which is the British Antarctic Survey’s largest base in Antarctica, is a centre for marine biology and gateway for getting scientists into their deep field camps.

Christmas Day is a regular working day for the staff of around 90. However the chefs will be getting everyone into the festive spirit with a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings
