All about Antarctica from someone who has been there once. I hope to go back to write a book with the same name as this blog.

China plans to set up two new bases by 2015
A few years ago I remember reading about China planning to set up a fourth research base sometime between 2015 and 2030. Today, though, I read an article about China planning to not only add their fourth Antarctic base by 2015, but also a fifth one. One of the new stations will a year round station in Victoria Land and the other will be a summer season station located between their current bases of Zhongshan and Kunlun.
