Created by Erwin Springweiler in 1941, this medal portrays a polar bear sitting on an iceberg on one side, and a group of penguins on the other side. Although the climate is harsh and unforgiving at the poles, people are continuing to explore new worlds and to willingly endure hardship to expand humanity’s horizons and enrich our science. This medal was created in memory of all these explorers.
