In an Arctic landscape, you won’t run out of water. But you will run out of food. Getting to sea ice means you’re over water, which means you’re over fish.
Radios or transponders, especially those powered by a hand crank, are limited in range and direction. So you should regularly rotate transmission locations around your base camp.
Arctic shows us that the pilot has been stranded for weeks by revealing the map on which he tracks his transponder broadcasts: He’s marked off several days of broadcasting at each of several peaks around his plane.
Arctic explorers would carry their water bottles under their coats, on the ridge between their shoulders, right at the bases of their heads. That would keep it from melting without getting in the way of other stuff they had to carry.
They would also not drink their bottles all the way empty. Leaving a little water inside kept the refill from freezing.
Tells the story of the lone survivor of a plane crash in the far north. Living out of the carcass of his plane, he hones a routine for staying fed and attempting to signal potential rescuers eventually leaving the plane to increase his odds of being rescued.
A lot of research on survival and on frozen landscapes was made for writing the movie and this can be seen in the actions of the character and the challenges he faces.
Your body takes a lot of energy away from maintaining your core temperature in order to melt snow, so avoid it unless you are dehydrating.
Signal for help in a way that can be seen from the sky, even a mirror will do.
In Arctic, the pilot moves snow to render an "SOS" from the underlying black rock—but then has to spend time every day clearing snow that has blown through and obscured the message.
In Arctic, the pilot uses wire and a battery from his plane to generate heat and melt through the ice.
To avoid having to sit exposed while waiting for the fish to bite, make a bell by suspending a portion of the fishing line between two stakes, then string two things onto it that’ll clink together when you've got a fish on—a couple of pots, say, or the blades from trowels.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
