The Ukrainian research ship Noosfera has successfully reached the shores of the Antarctic.

The National Antarctic Scientific Center of Ukraine reported this.

The icebreaker left for its second Antarctic mission with a joint Polish-Ukrainian expedition on board in late December 2022.

On January 21, Pavlo Panasyuk, Captain of the Noosfera, announced the arrival at the Arctowski Polish Antarctic Station.

“On the way from Cape Town (South Africa), a 3759-mile (more than 6 thousand kilometers) long journey, the ship was hit by storms and passed huge icebergs, but the team successfully overcame all the challenges,” the NAC reported.

After delivering the Polish polar researchers and equipment to the Arctowski Station located on King George Island in the West Antarctic, the Noosfera will leave for the Vernadsky Station.
