I'm making this post as it's a question that gets asked frequently and it came up again today - no it's not good news!
I am a teacher of a year 4/5 class. I was wondering if we as a class could mail some questions about life in Antarctica to someone on one of the bases. Would they have time to respond?
This kind of request comes up quite frequently - and the answer is pretty much no.
First of all email addresses of the bases are not made public and secondly the people on the bases have little or no interest in replying to them. The only way it would work is if you already knew someone before they went to Antarctica and arranged it that way.
The CoolAntarctica site has answers to just about any question that I've ever been asked or seen asked - when I come across a new one, I add it in. The vast majority of questions are repeats or re-wordings and realistically no-one is going to spend the time typing it all out again to provide a more personal communication.
Having said that, if there are genuinely any new questions or ones that I haven't covered, please add them to this thread and I'll see what I can do about them. I'm afraid I won't respond to questions I know are already here - use the search facility at the bottom border of the main site for that - click on the logo at the top of this page.
