Imagine a laboratory so big that it is even bigger than India and China put together. Before I tell you what it is, you need to hear the story of how it came to be. Today’s much advocated dream of “one world” was a reality over 200 million years ago. All the seven continents we have learnt about in geography was one big land mass that eventually separated from each other over a period of millions of years and floated apart to look like what we see in the Atlas, or Google maps, today. From that supercontinent- Pangaea, there was a huge piece that drifted south and became what we now know as Antarctica. Antarctica’s unique geological conditions make it a much coveted place of research and study. And this is why many countries have set up research stations to study what the continent it has in store for them. India is one such. In fact, India with its two research stations–Maitri and Bharathi–joints the small and exclusive group of nine countries which have multiple bases in Antarctica. India’s Antarctic Programme officially began in 1981 when the first expedition to the continent was launched. It was the third Indian expedition, 81 member team that set up of the first research station Dakshin Gangotri.
