At both the southern and northern poles of our earth, scientists investigate the hidden mysteries of our planet's history. In these inhospitable climates they need state-of-the-art 3D model dwelling and research units.
Arctic Research One has preloads of both a single and three pod version of these self sufficient research pods. The stark colors provide the necessary visibility in cases where people lose their way in the snow and/or darkness. Strong floodlights provide additional visibility aids. The safety ropelines help guide the personnel between the pods. Given their distant locations and inaccessibility, these units use self-sufficient solar panels power to run the equipment and satellite dishes offer global communications.
The large tempered glass geodome provides an optional enclosure for the roof walkway above the pod, which can be used as a protected terrarium or enclosed observation deck and is accessed through the upper hatch.
The included ground terrain has textured deep snow and snow print paths. Each pod can be accessed from ladders and the central pod has an additional enclosed entrance that perfect for storage. The doors and hatches slide open with open/close morphs.
