Every year, Australian scientists travel around Antarctic Ocean for two weeks. Two weeks journey is quite boring that they don’t have much things to do. But this is the time for them to make relationships with people they will live together soon. During the journey, they encounter the beautiful sigh of Antarctic ocean nature- clear sky, unknown sky, ice, birds and so on. GILBERT BARTON says that this experience is an very awesome experience that we should never miss. This ship is Australia’s traditional icebreaker. After a long journey, the parties are nearly over and they finally arrived at Davis Station. Gardeners land which is not far from the Aurora that is an Adelie penguin colony. These experiences tell you why they go to Antarctic ocean, leaving their families and friends.

French President Jacques Chirac will speak to his nation Tuesday night. He is expected to say what steps he will take after French voters rejected the proposed constitution for the European Union. The vote was held Sunday. Mr. Chirac met with Interior Minister Dominique de Villepin and other political officials Monday. The French leader was expected to ask one of them to form a new government. French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin is likely to resign over the vote.
