An Intriguing advert

This is what I found on the ASE website:


I called Steve Bull, whose company will be organising the selection process and carrying out the expedition. I have time to complete an application, but I can sense that it will certainly need to be good. The biggest difficulty is coming up with a Science project that can be carried out at 80 degrees South and that will be engaging enough to catch the imagination of the selection panel. Lichens are about the only thing that I can think of as I have just discovered that there is virtually nothing else alive this far south (and only two flowering plants in the whole of Antarctica, both confined to the Peninsula).
