A small, free exhibition on the second floor of the Science Museum, the year-long Shackleton's Man Goes South is named after the title of a new work of fiction by author Tony White which explores the political, social and cultural impacts of climate change. The display shows how tales from Shackleton's heroic age of exploration have inspired a thought-provoking work of fiction. Go to the Atmosphere gallery and you can download a free copy of the book as an e-book.
