On the eve of explorers who carried the duty of the whole last year, returned to Murmansk. Arctic voyage made nuclear-powered ship "Russia".Nuclear-powered whistle frightened the polar bear. The owner of the Arctic in disarray. He walked for several days after the icebreaker, hiding behind the hummocks. But such audacious revelations did not expect. As well as threatening the noise in the sky.Meanwhile, the polar dog barking Dick meets an evil alien from the mainland. He has a presentiment of a quick separation from the current owners. Habitual way of life before drifting station NP-38 violated unless the cracks on the ice, which now and then passed between the houses. Last eloquently made clear: a platform for the station comes into disrepair. These are the fruits of an abnormally warm summer in the Arctic - the second ever recorded."They began to quickly lengthen the wires so they do not drown, do not freeze to their piece of ice is not disrupted.

The other shore ice was much stronger. On it and set up camp mate - a new team, thirty-ninth joint venture. Nearly a week of MI-8 circled over ice, dragging a two-ton houses on the other side of the drifting station."The ice conditions were extremely difficult to find an ice field.

Year of life in the high northern latitudes, the doctor of the future JV-39 is not scary. Behind - wintering in South Pole."I had three options for graduate school, and three years vegetating on a scholarship, I set off for a money making in the Antarctic. It was pleased that I ran down there", - says Mikhail Vorontsov, a physician research drifting station "SP-39" .By what route will travel thirty-ninth drifting station, known only as long as wayward Arctic. Sweeten with a farewell to the new group "North Pole" to try the cake galley icebreaker "Russia" - such a tradition. It is believed that much bread and salt thoroughly stocked explorers.
