Here is an possible opportunity (if it's a legit endeavour) to go and explore. I understand that it will be a controlled expedition but the more of us apply the higher the chance of someone like us going and investigating.

Dude, it's just another example of a pre-programmed propaganda expedition to make it seem like Antarctica is open and there's nothing to hide and the restrictions are all about "preserving the environment for Science"... The expedition takes place in the Heritage Range area. Other expeditions that you can pay for go there, it's nothing new. In the rare event that you're one of the chosen people that gets to go, all you're gonna see is a bunch of ice and probably a few penguins if you're lucky. That's it. How exciting, right?  Rolling Eyes

Also, check out this "strange" wording:

Does it make sense to call this a "sabbatical" as if it was a vacation? You're supposedly going there to conduct research about microplastics (much of your time will be spent hand in hand with your team, collecting snow samples to be studied in the lab, and building your research to see if microplastics are present in Antarctica's interior.), so essentially you're there to do work (albeit most likely pointless and irrelevant work, but that's besides the point).

Oh, I understand that. It struck me as completely at odds and don't think for a second that it will happen. I guess I got a little bit excited. I'm always up for an expenses-paid holiday.

Didn't catch on to the wording though. Nice.

Ah, I get it. No one is going, but the experiment will go ahead and they will of course find microplastics at the Antarctic. It's clear now.
