Antarctica ~ Secrets Beneath the Ice

Today on Far future Horizons we visit the vast frozen wasteland of Antarctica to glean the secrets of our planet’s climatic history and perhaps a glimpse of our future.

In today’s video feature we examine the ANDRILL project, which is drilling deep beneath the Antarctic ice in order to gather information about Earth’s paleoenvironmental history. Scientists battle the elements in the harsh environment in order to retrieve rock cores that shed light on past climate changes and, perhaps, give a glimpse of what the planet’s future may be like.

NOVA: Secrets Beneath the Ice is available on DVD from PBS home video.
