Under the ice

Ralph Buttigieg

Sydney, NSW

The big question I have regarding those Russian flag planters is what did they find under the Arctic ice? Was it only mud or is there something worth seeing? Above is a photograph from the book “Under Antarctic Ice” theres certainly a few interesting sights under Antarctica, although I'll make sure to take a well insulated dry suit when I go there. Below is another photograph and theres more here. Thanks to polar explorer Ben Saunders for the link.
