Happenings on The Ice and at the Museum

Throughout the six weeks our crew was in Antarctica, our Webcast studio was hopping. Visitors tried on the offical NSF parka, looked at maps showing our team's whereabouts, and watched spectacular video.

Our online audiences were treated to over forty Webcasts between December 1, 2001, and January 12, 2002. They included conversations with penguins, a dive under the Antarctic ice shelf, a climb up volcanic Mt. Erebus, and Christmas at McMurdo Station. In addition, the team gathered questions from our studio and online visitors, and searched for answers to provide in later Webcasts.

We invite you to browse our archive of events and enjoy the wealth of insight into Antarctica's scientific life.

You will need the free RealPlayer to view Webcasts. (need help?)
