No matter how content you may be professionally, you may at some point feel your job is too hard and demanding. Then consider what this team of medical researchers is doing: Working at the Concordia Station in Antarctica, the rotating team of 12 to 15 researchers is living in extremely harsh conditions to study how humans cope.

The Concordia researchers spend months at a time living on the base researching how humans handle temperatures 112 degrees below zero, at 3,233 meters above sea level, and with no other human settlement within 370 miles. (Concordia is also a site of geological research, among other subjects, and is located inland from the Antarctic coast shared with New Zealand.) The study of extreme environments is of course not for everyone.
