A scientific exploration เล่นสล็อต expedition team is heading to Antarctica to collect samples that will help research how far microplastics travel. The Devon team will leave in December and mark 100 years since Sir Ernest Shackleton set out on his final quest. The veterans and serving military personnel will be taken by the Royal Navy's icebreaker, HMS Protector. They hope to take samples from remote parts of the continent and pull sleds more than 300km (186 miles). Lieutenant Commander Paul Hart, who is leading the expedition, said they will undertake scientific research to help understand how humans are impacting the Antarctic with a special focus on climate change. "As a minimum it will be 300km but this will be over mountainous terrain," he said. The project, is being run in collaboration with Dr Imogen Napper of the University of Plymouth, who said: "Understanding exactly how far microplastics can travel is the next big scientific question and their presence in snow taken from the peninsula will show they are reaching every part of our planet, even those areas cut off from any human activity." The expedition is inspired by one of Britain's most widely known expedition leaders, Sir Ernest Shackleton.
