Athonet, a pioneer in private cellular network technology, and SpaceX announced today the establishment of a private cellular network for critical voice and data communications at Union Glacier, Antarctica. The Athonet kit was extremely quick and simple to install and deploy at the base camp, and the team had a cellular network umbrella covering a 45km area providing services to the teams and guests within a few hours. The network provides coverage for the service teams pushtotalk, emergency messaging, VoIP, and other daily activities around camp, as well as internet access to visitors such as tourists and research teams. The team required a network that could withstand the harsh conditions at the South Pole, which included negative temperatures averaging 30°C and high winds. Read More..

China intensifies security threat and surveillance with new satellite assistance from Antarctica.

Concerns about Beijings surveillance initiatives and the escalating security threats against the United States have been raised following the announce

Concerns about Beijings surveillance initiatives and the escalating security threats against the United States have been raised following the announcement that Beijing intends to build additional ground stations in Antarctica to assist its satellite activities and data collection. The International Assessment and Strategy Centers Rick Fisher, a senior fellow, stated that the new facilities planned for the alreadyexisting Zhongshan research outpost in eastern Antarctica have long been a cause for worry. Fractional Orbital Bombardment Systems FOBS, a Cold Warera missile programme that sought to avoid early U.S. warning detection systems by launching a nuclear payload from the south over South America rather than from the west over Russia, are currently being developed by China.

Climate change forced an upgrade to Antarcticas sole electric exploration vehicle.

In 2021, the first entirely electric polar exploration vehicle, the Venturi Antarctica, was sent to the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica research facilit

In 2021, the first entirely electric polar exploration vehicle, the Venturi Antarctica, was sent to the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica research facility. It was built to operate at 58°F 50°C, but as temperatures rose to 14°F 10°C, a Venturi team developed adjustments to better withstand the warmer environment. The vehicles range was increased to 310 miles, new, vibrationreducing sprockets were used in their place, and air intakes and vents were added to the front and rear of the vehicle 500 kilometers. Scientists are now using it for trips of up to 25 kilometres 40 km. Read More..

A southern elephant seal was tagged by scientists on the island of Kerguelen, which is located in the far southern Indian Ocean. The seal provided early evidence that Denman Glacier could pose a significant threat to global coastlines. Denman glacier had received little scientific attention at the time. The deepest point of them all, about the depth of two Grand Canyons, lay beneath Denman. If this valley were to fill with water, global sea levels would rise by nearly 5 feet. Read More..

To support research on the icy continent, Starlink Satellite Internet was tested in Antarctica.

Only about 5% of the 3400 operational Starlink satellites in orbit can reach Antarctica. Polar satellites use optical interlinks lasers to connect use

Only about 5% of the 3400 operational Starlink satellites in orbit can reach Antarctica. Polar satellites use optical interlinks lasers to connect users because Antarctica lacks ground stations. These space lasers send and receive communications from ground stations in South America, New Zealand, and Australia. Starlink is assisting with a field experiment at the Center for Oldest Ice Exploration COLDEX to discover the oldest ice on Earth. Scientists would be able to look back in time using information preserved in the ice. In December 2022, COLDEX began field testing Starlink. Read More..

Today, Systemiq Ventures, a climate investor, announced a $20 million Series A fundraising round for a firm that builds protein products using the worlds largest knowledge network of natural biodiversity. The round also included participation from Valo, Blue Horizon, True Ventures, and Hummingbird Ventures, bringing Basecamp Researchs total fundraising to date to $30M. Basecamp creates protein products that give R&D teams new starting points, enable the identification of previously undiscovered proteins, and test the most promising candidates. The largest protein code database in the world has been created by Basecamp, and it is being used to train a proprietary stack of graph learning algorithms. Local partners, referred to as guardians, receive a portion of client royalties through Basecamps distinctive benefitsharing approach.

Microplastics found in previously “pristine” Antarctic water, air and sediments.

Microplastics have been discovered in the water, air, and sediment of the Antarctic by a research trip. Each and every sample had some level of microplastic contamination. By far the most common, with a presence in 60% of samples, were polyester fibres. Fragments of nylon, polypropylene, and acrylic were found to make up the majority of the other contaminants. The majority of microplastics seem to have arrived from South America. The expeditions results cast doubt on the conventional wisdom that the Antarctic Circumpolar Current shields the majority of Antarctica from pollution affecting other oceans. This week, representatives from more than 150 governments will gather to draught a global, legally binding document on plastic pollution. Read More..
