Mary Miller chats with scientists at the South Pole about the nearly-completed telescope. The satellite connection to the pole deteriorated quickly, and we hope to repeat this program in the near future. Stay tuned for updates! Join us as we talk to South Pole scientists about Ice Cube, a major new telescope being built deep below the surface to detect ghostly neutrino particles. The neutrino telescope will use thousands of detectors spread over a square kilometer of ice below the South Pole to study cosmological mysteries such as black holes, gamma ray bursts, and the remnants of supernova explosions.
Check out this amazing footage of how scientists drop detectors miles into the ice to search for elusive neutrinos. What's Christmas like at the South Pole? Also learn about the Race Around the World and the installation of the telescope's new receiver. Join us as we talk to scientists from the ANDRILL (ANtarctica DRILLing) project, who are currently on a geological drilling expedition in Antarctica. Tom Crawford and Jeff McMahon show us a day in the life of a South Pole scientist, then talk about what the telescope will be searching for: dark matter, galaxy clusters, and evidence of the universe expanding. Join Exploratorium biologist Karen Kalumuck as she experiments with enzymes and proteins and shows at what temperatures they function best. South Pole scientists Tom Crawford and Jeff McMahon take us on a virtual tour of the South Pole Station, then discuss working in the polar environment. Join Exploratorium physicists Paul Doherty and Stephanie Chasteen as they examine the past, present, and future of climate change. Watch as Paul and Stephanie demonstrate how you can look at a slice of climate from the past, what a sediment core might look like, and the secrets hidden in an ice balloon! 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.
