About

Ny-Ålesund is a place in the far North at 79°N and located on the island group Spitsbergen. In the 1960s, Ny-Ålesund changed from being a mining village to being a science village. I got the privilage to stay for about 15 months in this little research village while working as an engineer for the French-German research station AWIPEV. I regularly report about the science, the landscape and the life over here. Often in smaller articles with a picture and a bit of text, sometimes in larger, more in-depth articles.

More information on Ny-Alesund you can find in one of my first articles:
