A life of science
Stefan Kröpelin und Baba Mallaye
Weeks at a time they traverse unexplored landscapes, crossing paths with not a single other soul in sight. Help in case of an emergency, there's none. They drink water that tastes of its plastic canister and eat tinned food. During the day they trek through the heat and dust, climbing the highest mountains in the Sahara. At night they sleep under the ice-cold night skies.
This may sound like a military exercise, but no - what's going he here is scientific exploration. Researchers tirelessly and courageously pursuing a dream. The dream of a science which serves humanity, exploring and protecting our natural and cultural heritage.
