Russian Schoolchildren Break 3 World Records On Antarctic Venture

One of the records is the word MIR (PEACE in Russian) An international Antarctic youth expedition, Sky Odyssey for Russia's Glory, broke three world records. They have already been registered by the Russian Guinness Book, reports RIA Novosti. The crew included the kids from all post-Soviet countries. According to RIA Novosti, "a word 'mir' - Russian for 'peace'- appeared on the Antarctic snow, total area 6,000 sq m. A helicopter photographed it from the air with a digital camera. The picture was transmitted to a laptop and on, via a communication satellite, to the International Space Station. Its crew - Salizhan Sharipov and Leroy Chiao - e-mailed the picture all over the world". The Antarctic expedition organized the world's first Olympic youth relay race on the soil of Antarctica to a 2,012 meter distance to symbolize the year of the summer Olympic which Moscow is bidding to host. A plush penguin stood for the baton. To celebrate their athletic event, the kids made another inscription on the snow, "Peace Moscow 2012", over a 12,500 square meter area. The Sky Odyssey for Russia's Glory had support and sponsorship from Russia's federal government and Moscow municipal authorities.
