In this video, ride in a special Mattracks truck across the ice sheet with geologist Christina Riesselman as she travels with ANDRILL Staff Scientist Richard Levy from McMurdo Station to the ANDRILL drill site. They investigate the truck’s special wheels, observe beautiful panoramas of the Transantarctic Mountains, and hear the drill running at the drill site.
