ASC Adventurer Veronique Verhoeven spent the winter traveling through Antarctica as the doctor aboard a ship. During her travels she collected microbe samples for the High Altitude Microbe project and recorded whale observations for two ASC science projects. The ship sailed to the Ross Sea near Mc Murdo Base. The crew took a helicopter to explore the Dry Valleys. The permits for scientists and visitors are very strict and Veronique is happy to share these photos from such a remote place.
