As a response to the ongoing oil race and territorial claim of the Arctic an expedition organized by Greenpeace trekked to the North Pole and placed a time capsule, containing 2.7 million signatures, 4km down on the seabed. The capsule will float back to the surface in around 50 years with a message to the future.

Location: North Pole
