The Kaspersky Commonwealth Antarctic Expedition will see 8 women from the Commonwealth countries of Cyprus, Ghana, India, Singapore, Brunei, New Zealand, Jamaica and the United Kingdom brave blizzards, crevasses and temperatures below -30C as they ski over 900 kilometres across Antarctica to the Geographic South Pole.
As well as building them a website - www.kasperskycommonwealthexpedition.com - the expedition team are using their own 'Glasnost' to manage the whole mammoth project. With team members from all around the world there are a myriad of people who need to contribute or download all manner of digital materials. Glasnost will enable everyone to collaborate and communicate effectively and efficiently wherever they are.
The expedition starts on the 12th November and the team expect to arrive at the South Pole around New Year's Day 2010.
