Argo Atv Going To The Antarctic For Science

The Team from the Australasian Antarctic Expedition 2013-2014┬áhad a fantastic day training on thier most recent purchase, the Argo All Terrain Vehicle. The A.A.E Team spent a day in training this week with Argo ATV (Aust) in Brisbane. It seemed wonderfully ridiculous to be preparing for Antarctic conditions by driving in Queensland heat and dust. But somehow it worked. The Team went up and down slopes, raced along tracks and even drove through water. If they are unluckily enough to break through the sea ice, at least we know they will float! The Argo is perfect for making safe passage across Commonwealth Bay to Mawson’s huts at Cape Denison.
