The research vessel "Polarstern" of the Alfred Wegner Institute in Bremerhaven starts a one-year expedition to the central Arctic.
This journey requires long-term and careful preparation. Unfortunately, it doesn't work to just have something forwarded. Up to 1000 km can lie between "Polarstern" and the mainland. You really have to think of everything. In addition to the right special clothing or sufficient food, the crew must also be prepared for medical emergencies.
A surgeon accompanies the expedition. An operating room equipped with one of our digital X-ray machines is available on board and supports the doctors.
