REBECCA PRIESTLEY, TIM NAISH, RHIAN SALMON, TE RADAR 

Sexually depraved penguins, polar sunrises, fish soaked in anti-freeze. Hear Antarcticans Rebecca Priestley, Tim Naish and Rhian Salmon from Victoria University of Wellington’s Faculty of Science talk about their experiences and read passages from Dispatches from Continent Seven, a new anthology illuminating more than 200 years of science and discovery on the frozen continent. Fellow Antarctican Te Radar will chair a discussion of what drives scientists to work, and sometimes risk their lives, in this most inhospitable of environments.
