Onward goes the new Fram!

In a fascinating twist of serendipity, I was astonished to read in the news today that the Mosaic expedition will repeat the landmark journey undertaken by the Fram, which I recently read about in Fridtjof Nansen’s book Farthest North. The expedition aims to learn more about the impact of climate change on the Arctic region, in particular the Arctic sea ice which is in retreat, and expects to complete the drift within a year, significantly more quickly than the three years it took Nansen and his crew. I will be watching the expedition with very great interest indeed.
