I am most excited about
I am most excited about the work in the harsh Arctic winter, and how participants will cope with it together as a team. I expect all sorts of challenges, from the darkness, to polar bears, to the cold, from failing equipment to challenging group dynamics. No matter from which angle you look at this massive undertaking, everything is just super exciting.
