A parka worn by German polar explorer, geophysicist, and meteorologist Alfred Wegener. This parka allows the user to move objects with their mind, as in psychokinesis. The only downside is that the heavier the object moved by the user, the colder the parka becomes. Moving an object too heavy will cause the parka to freeze the user alive.

OriginEdit

Alfred Lothar Wegener (November 1, 1880 – November 1930) was a German polar researcher, geophysicist and meteorologist. During his lifetime he was primarily known for his achievements in meteorology and as a pioneer of polar research, but today he is most remembered for advancing the theory of continental drift (Kontinentalverschiebung) in 1912, which hypothesized that the continents were slowly drifting around the Earth. His hypothesis was controversial and not widely accepted until the 1950s, when numerous discoveries such as paleomagnetism provided strong support for continental drift, and thereby a substantial basis for today's model of Plate tectonics.

Wegener was involved in several expeditions to Greenland to study polar air circulation before the existence of the jet stream was accepted. Expedition participants made many meteorological observations and achieved the first-ever overwintering on the inland Greenland ice sheet as well as the first-ever boring of ice cores on a moving Arctic glacier.

CollectionEdit

Upon hearing of a Russian man moving objects in his farm with his mind, Warehouse 13 agents were sent to find out what he was using. Once they reached his Siberian farm, his body was found frozen in ice. The parka was laying nearby. Using Joseph Fourier's Pocket Knife , they were able to melt the ice and free the Russian man.
