Only 4 weeks of Sunlight left before 4 months of Darkness

The European Space Agency has challenged the public to inspire our crew overwintering at Concordia Station – please feel free to make a comment or suggestion for our crew advising how you would spend your time enjoying and making the most out of the last 4 weeks of sunlight, before the sun sets in May, leaving Concordia Station in 4 months of complete 24 hour darkness, until September.  The outside temperature will fall to below minus 80 degrees Celsius.  It is the closest anyone can come to living on the surface of another planet, or perhaps the dark side if the moon.  The coldest temperature ever recorded in world history was only 560 km away – minus 89.2 degrees Celsius. Will we beat it this year … our crew will be left to wonder in the dark, alone.

Feel free to add your own suggestions at the following link:

Bonne Nuit!
