27:30

There's not much life on the 80th parallel north, close to the northernmost point in the world. It's a vast icy desert with the occasional polar bear or walrus seen in the distance. Russian researchers are making their way there aboard the Akademik Tryoshnikov to wedge into an ice floe and simply, 'go with it'.
