Australia’s favourite scientist joins forces with Orion Expedition Cruises for what is certain to be an unforgettable adventure to the Antarctic in December 2009.
Australia’s favourite science nerd, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, who famously won the 2002 Ig Nobel prize for his research into belly button lint and why it’s almost always blue, will delve into the mysteries of the Antarctic as a member of the Orion Expedition Team this December. Dr Karl’s achievements are too extensive to list, but include countless radio and TV spots and around 30 brilliant books. If you’re interested in hopping aboard for the 18-night voyage of your life, you’ll need at least $19,000. Departs Dec 27.
