This otherworldly photo is so amazingly weird and exotic that you may think it comes from a secret colonial base in the Jovian moon of Europa. In reality, it’s the Halley VI Research Station in Antarctica as photographed by Antony Dubber, the chef of the British Antarctic Survey.

If you happen to live near London, England, you can see more from the ice lab here.
