Now that the Antarctic Campaign 2017-2018 is almost open, it’s time to make presentations and get to know the neighbors.
Polish Vernadski Research Station (WAP POL-Ø1) was opened on 26 February 1977.
A commemorative plaque for this year’s 40th anniversary of Vernadski Station has been given , with a big surprise, to the Polish team by the Chilean neighbors of Base Presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva (WAP CHL-Ø5).
Chile’s independence was officially declared on February 12, 1818, so 2017 marks their 99th anniversary of independence a good way to celebrate both events with 2 joint plaquest on the Antarctic soil.
Personnel from Arctowski did get a first meeting with Brazilians from Comandante Ferraz Station (WAP BRA-Ø2) to mark the good relations of friendship between the two research units in Antarctica.
