The view from Concordia research station in Antartctica.
Temperatures can drop to –80°C and the Sun does not rise above the horizon for around four months, leaving the base in permanent darkness. The crew have only themselves to rely on – there can be no help from the outside under these harsh conditions.
ESA sponsors a medical research doctor in Concordia every winter to study the long-term effects of isolation.
