MEANWHILE, there’s only a few days left on Aurora Expeditions’ special offer where customers can save up to 20% off on Antarctica summer 2020/21 voyages. The offer ends on 30 June 2019.


The voyages on offer are Spirit of Antarctica, Christmas in Antarctica, Antarctic Explorer, South Georgia & Antarctic Odyssey & Solar Eclipse in Antarctica. Aurora Expeditions announced last week that the Solar Eclipse voyage in Antarctica will be hosted by two NASA scientists, Dr Micheller Thaller and Dr Andrew Booth who will give lectures on the solar eclipse, Antarctica and general astronomy in the staggering surroundings of Antarctica. 



IN OTHER NEWS, Aurora Expeditions has announced NASA astronomer Dr Michelle Thaller and NASA Engineer Dr Andrew Booth as special guests for the expedition company’s total solar eclipse voyage in December 2021.


Assistant Director for Science Communication at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Centre, Dr Michelle Thaller will act as the main lecturer for the voyage. Dr Thaller will conduct a series of talks together with Dr Andrew Booth on the solar eclipse, Antarctica and general astronomy in the staggering surroundings of Antarctica.


Travellers on this voyage will be part of a once-in-a-lifetime event as the full eclipse will only be visible from Antarctica. Taking place in the early hours of December 4, 2021, Aurora Expeditions’ soon-to-be-launched polar-class ship, the Greg Mortimer, will be in prime viewing position to see the moon transition in front of the sun, shrouding the white Antarctic wilderness in a surreal darkness.


“The extreme environment of Antarctica is used by NASA to simulate places as far away as Mars and the moons of Jupiter, and we promise to take the passengers along for a scientific journey they’ll never forget,” said Dr Thaller. Her husband and NASA Engineer Dr Andrew Booth continues:


The 22-day total Solar Eclipse in Antarctica voyage departs Ushuaia, Argentina on 24 November 2021 and includes planned visits to the South Shetland Islands, the Antarctic Peninsula, Elephant Island, South Georgia and the Falklands-Malvinas. *In true expedition style, itineraries are always subject to change due to ice and weather conditions.
