It is perhaps the last great Antarctic expedition - to find an explanation for why there is a great mountain range buried under the White Continent.
"You can almost think about it as exploring another planet - but on Earth," said Dr Fausto Ferraccioli from the British Antarctic Survey.
"This region is a complete enigma. It's in the middle of the continent. Most mountain ranges are on the edges of continents, and we really can't understand what these mountains are doing in the centre."
Originally posted by absenteThis expedition sounds quite interesting regarding the situation. What is underneath those mountains - why are they there, if there is no geological explanation? Kind of reminds me of a movie... you know it.
