This week we celebrate midwinter. We are halfway through the darkness and on the home stretch to see the sun for the first time in four months. The northern hemisphere will celebrate midsummer this week. Opposites attract - we would love to see your photos of the Sun and your midsummer celebrations.
When explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton stayed in Antarctica almost 100 years ago, he had no way to communicate with the world. Although Concordia endures the same physical isolation as Shackleton's crew, we now have access to email and telephone via satellites.
