Antarctic scientists face breathalyser tests due to alcohol-fuelled fighting and 'indecent exposure'
Audit of two Antarctic bases run by United States heard that alcohol was fuelling “unpredictable behaviour”, with calls to deploy breathalysers Breathalysers could be used to curb alcohol abuse among at
