They also proposed that organisms living in the poles would have been more resilient to global climatic changes associated with an asteroid impact due to their high adaptability in the environment that were always strongly seasonal. Victor remained the head of the organization until 1976 and led more than 3,000 people on scientific expeditions to both poles.
