Every year, artists from around the world meet in a small village in northern Sweden for a project that is known as “ICEHOTEL”. Covering 5,500 square meters of land and constructed from 2000 tonnes of ice and an additional 30 000 tonnes of “snice” (snow and ice), the hotel is the largest of its kind in the world.
Cool experiment of the day!

The Concordia research station is located on the Antarctic Plateau and operates year round. It is over 500 kilometres from the nearest civilisation and is considered the most isolated human outpost on the planet. 3233 metres above sea level, Concordia is built atop a naturally occurring summit on the Antarctic Ice Sheet and experiences dry conditions with temperatures well below freezing. These conditions are ideal for the study of astronomy, which is one project conducted here along with the investigation into climate change.
