We have a different global perspective. The expected view of the world is with the equator in the center. And in such a perspective the Arctic seems to be at the unreachable far end of the world. But if you put the North Pole in the center and draw a circle around the “the Arctic cake” you will see Longyearbyen’s great strategic location for activities in the far north. An arctic capital at 78ºN.
