Isolation at the polar ice caps teaches us to become more responsible about our planet

Interview of Nadja Albertsen, Doctor and Researcher

Season 1, episode 8
8 min / Published

For 13 months, I lived on the Concordia science station as a doctor-researcher for ESA. Living In the Antarctic is a unique experience: you have to survive on limited resources for long periods of time; even though you are surrounded by Ice, water is still a precious resource and 80% of it is recycled. The Antarctic station is an experimental site for space exploration, where we learn to live in a responsible way and to protect the planet Earth.
