An 8-member team led by a 62-year old glaciologist Rasik Ravindra will leave on an arduous 2200-Km journey to the Antarctica. It will be after three decades that an Indian expedition is venturing once again to the South Pole and 99 years after the first such exercise by Ronald Amundsen in 1911. The team members are all scientists who have been to the Antarctica earlier - the leader Rasik Ravindra has been there five times. India has a permanent base 'Maitri' in the Antarctica for conducting scientific research and experiments since 1989.
