The Year That Made Antarctica

The Year That Made Antarctica
People, politics & the International Geophysical Year
Wednesday 26 April – Saturday 9 September 2017
Over dinner in the spring of 1950 a party of scientists produced an ambitious proposal for a global year of science: the International Geophysical Year was born. With a heavy emphasis on Antarctica, thousands of people from dozens of countries came together to learn about our planet and laid the foundations for the Antarctic Treaty which has preserved the continent for science and peaceful activity for almost sixty years.
