Would you fly over the ocean in a wobbly old plane that had been repaired with chewing gum? It sounds crazy but Hubert Wilkins did. Hubert Wilkins was one of the first people to explore Antarctica and the Arctic Circle. Not only that, he was a photographer, a film-maker, and he made some of the most innovative scientific discoveries of the early 1900’s. Can you believe that some of what we now know about the weather came from Hubert Wilkins' research almost a hundred years ago? So strap in to take a trip to some of the coldest places on Earth!
