They are looking for the wreck of the Italia airship on the 90th anniversary of the crash which made the history of polar exploration. An international team of arctic researchers look for answers to some of the greatest enigmas of science, from climate change to the origin of high energy cosmic rays, from measuring the impact of human pollution at extreme latitudes to creating awareness of the micro- and nano-plastic contents in the Arctic Ocean. A voyage to the last untouched wildernesses on earth, to convey the importance of theArctic for our sustainable future.
