Johnny Madsen - Færgemanden

Det var en stormfuld nat
langt væk fra Kattegat
vi sad i et støveri
i en by nær ved Vestervig
og det banked på vor dør
vi syntes vi havde hørt den lyd før
det var den færgemand
den farlige færgemand

[OMKVÆD:]
Det var den færgemand
og han solgte færgevand
og når man drak hans færgevand
blev Danmark et dejligt land
der var også mælk ombord
og et postkort hjem til mor
og så lidt mere færgevand
fra den farlige færgemand


Det var en dejlig dag
vi tog fra Rønbjerg af
luften den var mild
og "æ hugger" han var vild
en sofa stod på skibets dæk
med moonshine der var læk
og en færdig færgemand
den farlige færgemand

In the spirit of exploration—both of this planet and of others—researchers sent a probe under the Antarctic ice in January 2013. For nearly a decade, scientists and engineers have been crafting various tools and methods to see what lurks below the thick ice sheets of Antarctica, Greenland, and other ice-covered landscapes. Can life survive and thrive in these extreme, light-less environments? What does the terrain look like, and how does it affect the motion of the ice above? And what do these environments teach us about potential life on other planets?
The latest attempt to see what lies beneath is the Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling (WISSARD) project. A research team from eight universities and two international institutions trekked several hundred kilometers over the Ross Ice Shelf, drilled a hole through it, and lowered a tethered, robotic vehicle into the sub-glacial Lake Whillans. Buried under hundreds of meters of ice, the 50-square-kilometer (20-square-mile) lake does not receive sunlight and has a water temperature of -0.5°Celsius (31°Fahrenheit.
The top image above is a still captured from a video camera on baseball bat-sized submersible as it was being lowered through 800 meters (2,600 feet) of ice. The borehole was roughly 50 centimeters (20 inches) wide. The second image is the first captured by that mini-submarine as it reached the bottom of Lake Whillans. It shows sediment at the bottom of the lake.
The Micro-Submersible Lake Exploration Device—the instrumented, submarine vehicle developed by Alberto Behar of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and students at Arizona State University—surveyed the lake with an imager and chemical sensors. It transmitted real-time imagery, as well as salinity, temperature and depth measurements, to the ice surface via fiber-optic cables. According to Behar, it was the first instrument to explore a sub-glacial lake beyond the edge of a borehole.
The data enabled the team to verify that the rest of the project's instruments could be safely deployed into the lake. The WISSARD team then collected lake water samples in order to search for microbial life. Preliminary analysis shows that the lake water did contain living bacteria.
To learn more about the expedition, watch this short video narrated by Behar. Funding for development of the sub and support for the expedition was provided by NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and the U.S. National Science Foundation through the U.S. Antarctic Program.

NIEVE
Febrero de 1936
Panorama del norte:
mil li sellados por el cielo,
diez mil li en que la nieve flota.
A cada flanco de la Gran Muralla,
blanca vastedad.
De arriba abajo, el gran río
ha perdido de pronto su tumulto.
Danzan las montañas, serpientes de plata,
elefantes de cera, avanzan las tierras altas,
intentando medir su estatura con el cielo.
En días de sol,
vestida de blanco y adornada de rojo, veréis la tierra
aún más hermosa, más cautivante.
Tierra tan rica en belleza que incontables héroes la honraron a porfía.
Lástima que a Chin Shi Juang y Jan Wu Ti
les faltara lustre literario, que Tang Tai Tsung y Sung Tai Tsu
tuvieran magro don poético.
Hijo predilecto del Cielo en su momento,
Gengís Khan
sólo entendía de cimbrar su arco contra el águila gigante.
Todo eso es pasado, es ido.
Para encontrar a los héroes de veras
hay que poner los ojos en nuestros propios días.





Las Montañas de Chingkang
Otoño de 1928

Al pie de la colina flameaban las banderas y estandartes
En la cumbre se oían sonar nuestros clarines y tambores.
espesas mareas las tropas enemigas nos rodeaban:
nosotros nos quedamos inmóviles igual que una montaña.

Nuestra defensa que antes formaba una muralla inexpugnable,
unió además las voluntades en una fortaleza de granito.
¡Llegó de Juangyangchie el eco del tronar de los cañones
anunciando que el enemigo huía a escape en medio de la noche
