A friend from Stockholm is flying up to Tromsø, Norway for a conference and mentioned this exhibit. I wish I could see it—sadly, it will be over before I arrive in March. I love the poster. This is Nansen, by the way, one of the coolest of the Polar explorers and a Norwegian national hero.

It’s cheering to see the centuries-old Sámi and Inuit knowledge of snow and ice being recognized as contributing to Arctic exploration.
