Pluto might become a planet again, life in Earth’s northernmost settlement, the rarely seen side of Kurt Cobain, vintage samurai photos, and Dr. Seuss’ nudity-filled picture book.
Life In The Northernmost Settlement On The Planet
Want to get away from it all — even warmth? Head nowhere other than Svalbard. The frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean surround the cluster of Norwegian islands, which sit approximately 650 miles away from the North Pole. High latitude lines mean fewer people: with a population of approximately 2,200 people, it’s the northernmost year-round settlement on the planet. See if you could handle life there with these photos from The Atlantic.
