Try joining the ’300 club’ next. From a guide to life at the South Pole:
"When the temperature hits -100 degrees one of the things to do is to jump into a sauna, then run out into the cold with or without your clothes to experience a sudden temperature difference 300 degrees. It’s called joining the 300 club."
This advice comes from the builders of the recently unveiled, $271 million IceCube telescope built underground at the South Pole. Read about the IceCube or browse the guide. And if you’re interested in a polar plunge, join us on an Antarctica cruise.
