Czech Scientists at Antarctica found and eaten 50-years-old soup

1950's soup The unusual discovery happened at Antarctica to a team of Czech geological scientists. During their research, they found not only valuable minerals, but also food supplies left by a British science team in 1950’s. In the area, where the temperatures drop well under -30 Celsius, the bag soups stayed in a good shape. The team reported it tasted just fine.

According to the leader of the Czech expedition the half-a-century-old soup satisfied the Scottish specialist on logistics and transport in cold environment Nick Halls, too.

Czech scientists initiated geological mapping of neighbour areas of James Ross island, where is the Czech Polar Station. They found Jurassic sediments close to Crystal Hill, and to their surprise also a supply point set by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), who is the world leader exploring global problems connected to Antarctica weather.
