Exploratorium physicist Paul Doherty chats with Richard Levy, a geologist, and Ross Powell, who’s the co-director of the ANDRILL project. They are drilling beneath the Antarctic seafloor, and pulling up sediment cores. By looking at the layers of the past, they hope to help us predict our future.
This series of webcasts highlights scientific projects near the North and South Poles. Included are presentations that focus on global warming, the construction of the huge South Pole Telescope, and Ice Cube, an under-ice telescope that searches for neutrinos.
