Shackleton’s Man Goes South is the new novel by Tony White published by the Science Museum earlier this year. This thought-provoking new work of fiction is the Science Museum’s 2013 Atmosphere commission, published as part of the Contemporary Arts Programme. The novel is accompanied by a display in the Museum’s Atmosphere Gallery charting some of the scientific and literary inspiration behind the novel, that runs until spring 2014. In a central innovation visitors can use a dedicated touchscreen that is part of the display, to email themselves a free ebook of the novel in formats compatible with most devices.
