In Antarctica, a pointer to Yakutsk

A young researcher from Yakutia, Aisen Afanasyev, who works in Antarctica, installed a pointer to Yakutsk at the Novolazarevskaya wintering station - 17200 kilometers.

On a pole dug into the permafrost near the South Pole, dozens of such signs are nailed. Here you can see the distances to Boguchar, Sarapul, Tolyatti and many other large and small settlements of our country, from which Russian researchers arrived at the station at various times.

Magnetologist Aysen Afanasyev has been working at Lazarevskaya for a year now. He keeps a diary, which not only records scientific observations.

“When I first saw the polar lights, I was simply stunned by this beauty. I've never seen anything more exciting. The sky sparkles, shimmers, and it seems that the entire station, the entire Antarctica shine with the same colors as the sky, ”he writes.
