Band Of Scientists Play Antarctica Live Earth Gig
An indie rock band made up of five British scientists played a Live Earth concert in Antarctica on Saturday (07Jul07).
The group, Nunatak, performed on a glacier at a research station in Rothera.
Singer Matt Balmer says, "I can't believe we've been invited to do this. It's a fantastic opportunity to encourage people of the world to deal with climate change.
"We expected to spend our Antarctic winter here at Rothera quietly getting on with our work and maybe performing at the occasional Saturday night party. We could never have imagined taking part in a global concert."
