Andrei Shapran: The purpose of the project "Extreme Earth" - talk about the territories, which are outside the attention of ordinary people. It is always the northern territory of the Russian Federation - are closed to visits and classified in the Soviet period. Now they are no less difficult to access, though for different reasons - the purely technical. A four-month trip to Chukotka in 2015 was another milestone in my project. North Cape - the name given territory in person, James Cook, drifted here in 1778.It was the most northerly point achieved by the mainland. In Russia it was then on the throne of Catherine II, and the land stood out only on maps of the white spot.
