AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Based on the real-life experiences of two Australian women, Aurora Calling is a fascinating exploration of both the world of science and the realm of human experience and emotion.

'Trisha and Jackie became friends when they were studying at the Mawson Institute for Antarctic Research. Both women are upper atmospheric physicists investigating auroras. To further their research they travel to the polar regions where this amazing phenomenon occurs. Trisha goes to Alaska and Jackie to Antarctica.

'Poles apart, the two must rely on email to keep in touch and support each other as they try to juggle professional and personal life.'
