Travel to this continent is not for the faint of heart. The research facility where Gil Jeffer, was stationed can get colder than some places on Mars.

Join us at the Roxbury Public Library on May 17 at 6:30 p.m., when Jeffer, a research engineer at NJIT, will discuss living and working in Antarctica.

Discover how it feels to experience living on a two-mile thick sheet of ice where there is nothing between you and civilization except a vast, barren expanse of terrain, howling winds and where the average high temperature hovers around -49 degrees.
