EDEN ISS greenhouse in the South Pole

Dur­ing the Antarc­tic win­ter, the en­vi­ron­ment is ex­treme and hos­tile to life. Tem­per­a­tures drop to mi­nus 30 de­grees Cel­sius and no sun­light breaks the dark­ness of the po­lar night for months. The green­house has par­tic­u­lar­ly ef­fec­tive in­su­la­tion, as from De­cem­ber 2017 on­wards it must de­fy Antarc­tic con­di­tions.

During the Antarctic winter, the environment is extreme and hostile to life. Temperatures drop to minus 30 degrees Celsius and no sunlight breaks the darkness of the polar night for months. The greenhouse has particularly effective insulation, as from December 2017 onwards it must defy Antarctic conditions.
