Fact of the Day:
The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is based in Cambridge, England, and for over 60 years has undertaken much of the UK’s scientific research in Antarctica.
BAS employs over 400 staff, and supports three stations in the Antarctic, at Rothera, Halley (see image) and Signy, and two stations on South Georgia, at King Edward Point and Bird Island. The Antarctic operations and science programmes are executed and managed from Cambridge, and rely on a wide-ranging team of professional staff.
