My name is Anthony Lister, an electrical and renewable energy engineer. I’m due to start working at the amazing new research station at Halley Bay on the Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica in December 2013. I’ll be living and working in one of the most isolated places on the planet for two summers and one very, very long winter, including three months of darkness! I’ll be heading home midway through 2015.
Antarctica is the highest, the driest, coldest and windiest continent on planet earth and not exactly what you’d call hospitable to humans, it’s also one of the best places to conduct all sorts of scientific research and I’m lucky enough to be able to go.
Whilst there I’ll be keeping the base running, helping the scientists do their work and having the adventure of a lifetime. And whilst I’m doing that I’ll be trying to document it all here!
