Friday 17 May 2013, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London, EC2A 4JE

Tony White’s new novel Shackleton’s Man Goes South is published by the Science Museum as their Atmosphere commission 2013. The novel was inspired by Tony’s discovery in the archives of a little known science fiction story written in Antarctica in 1911 by Captain Scott’s surviving meteorologist George Clarke Simpson.

Novelist Tony White held a short reading from Shackleton’s Man Goes South, telling us how he used contemporary climate data and old polar archives to tell a new kind of climate change story.
