Join us as we celebrate the beginning of summer in the Arctic and the long, cold winter in Antarctica. We'll connect live to two polar field sites: Summit Camp atop Greenland's vast ice sheet, where the sun will be shining 24 hours a day, and the South Pole Research Station, now in the middle of 6 months of darkness.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
