Finding the background about remote places can be tricky...
... yet, it's something we often want to know. There are often places that are intriguing, but that have no handy signposts to tell you what's going on. What do you do when you want to find out about a place that's in the middle of nowhere?
|What nowhere looks like.
While looking around on Google Maps over Greenland one day I spotted a most remarkable thing. This is clearly next to nowhere, but it's big and complicated. Naturally, I was curious... so...
1. What is the story of this place? (It's 72.5787606,-38.4543542 )
2. What kind of organization would pay to put this thing here? Why?
3. What was the weather like on May 10, 2016? (And how cold would it have felt?)
4. (Extra credit) What's the most interesting story to come out of this place in the place year or so?
This isn't that hard to figure out, but it's a great chance to go exploring in a place that very, very few of us will ever visit. (Send me! Send me!)
