Traveling exhibition about how the Norwegian Polar Institute’s research vessel Lance was sent into the 24-hour darkness of winter and frozen into the ice at 83° North, 756 kilometres from the North Pole and 364 km from land. On board were researchers who wanted explanations for climate change. To understand what is happening, they had to be right there—in the ice, winter to summer—to study the melting ice at close range.
