Concordia research station in Antarctica is a place of extremes. In winter no sunlight is seen for four months and the typical crew of twelve live in complete isolation. In summer the Sun stays above the horizon and over 60 scientists arrive at the base.
During 'summer camp' aircraft take off on an almost daily basis. Concordia becomes a hubbub of activity as researchers from disciplines as diverse as astronomy, seismology, human physiology and glaciology a descend to study in this unique location.
