The first account of the famous MOSAiC expedition, which ended in 2020 and was tracked by the New York Times, Guardian, Washington Post, and more media outlets.
The biggest-ever Arctic science mission was international and involved hundreds of rotating scientists from over 80 institutions that can help promote the book.
History-making achievement: MOSAiC studied climate change in the Arctic for a full year including Polar Winter, which had never been done before.
A huge risk in the name of science: the MOSAiC team had their ship frozen into the ice and carried across the Arctic on the Transpolar Drift, an extremely dangerous maneuver that had never before been attempted.
World-changing scientific data: The data gained by the expedition will be used by scientists around the world and is expected to take climate research “to a whole new level.”
The captain’s tell-all tale: Markus Rex offers never-before-heard insights into his experience as captain of this famous expedition.
Suspenseful and compelling: Rex is a gifted writer, telling the story of terrifying storms, playful polar bears, and scientific discovery with a sense of suspense and adventure.
For readers of books about the Franklin Expedition and other Arctic adventures: Rex comments on expeditions past throughout the book.
A major feature documentary on the expedition aired on PBS in October 2021 and sold into 170 territories worldwide.
MOSAiC partners with countries around the world on various expeditions, including the USA, Great Britain, Canada, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Austria, Denmark, China, France, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
