Lenticular clouds are a type of wave cloud. They usually form when a layer of air near the surface encounters a topographic barrier, gets pushed upward, and flows over it as a series of atmospheric gravity waves. Image © Michael Studinger. Caption by Adam Voiland
The IceCube neutrino observatory, a special made telescope buried at the South Pol, has just detected extremely high-energy neutrinos. The elementary particles that originate outside our solar system.
These are some of the Research Stations, the habitable structures, at the End of the world, specially built to sustain the extreme climate conditions of South and North Poles.

In this video scientists strip away Antarctic ice to reveal a new, and much more detailed map of the bedrock below. The biggest ice sheet in our planet uncovered and our understanding of what lies beneath, has taken another leap forward. Check out the video…
The remote Antarctic research station Concordia witnessed its last sunset for over three months last Sunday. From here on they will work and live under artificial lighting as they survive and conduct research at the remotest base on Earth. Image © IPEV/PNRA–A. Litterio
Comandante Ferraz Antarctic Research Station by Estudio 41, is the winning proposal for the new home of Brazil in Antarctica. The base was destroyed by a fire in February 2012.
This as a potential design replacement of the Brazil’s Comandante Ferraz Antarctic Station, by architectural firm Triptyque Arquitetura. The base was destroyed by a fire in February 2012.
For the exploration of our planet and of others, researchers sent a probe under the Antarctic ice in January 2013. For nearly a decade, engineers have crafted various tools and methods to see what lurks below the thick ice sheets of Antarctica, Greenland, and other ice-covered landscapes.
