Virtual Escape

Dear UNE students and staff, do you fancy a little competitive distraction…

Join us for another virtual escape.

Let us set the scene…

World-renowned scientist Sander Klaus and his team believe that a microorganism is trapped beneath layers of thousand-year-old ice in a polar region.

He’s devoted his life to this research, and after months of no new findings, the team decides to take on a new, young researcher, and it’s just what the team needs.

When the young professor makes a breakthrough, it appears that not all hope is lost. But just as things begin to look promising, the team loses contact with him. He seems to have vanished without a trace…
