Watch as three giant helium balloons are launched above Antarctica to study climate history; listen as scientists talk about balloon research. Scientists at Palmer Research Station in Antarctica talk about their research: How is the rich marine ecosystem just offshore responding to melting sea ice and global climate change? Learn about the various projects and teams of people working on the South Pole Telescope. Join Exploratorium senior scientist Paul Doherty as he serves up more hands-on activities related to science in Antarctica.

Today we wrap up our conversations with the ANDRILL scientists (including project leader Dave Harwood) and hear about what lies ahead for the project. Join Exploratorium senior scientist Paul Doherty as he serves up hands-on activities related to science in Antarctica. What have scientists learned from the South Pole Telescope so far, and what work needs to be done this year as the scientists fine-tune this amazing new piece of technology? Watch ANDRILL scientists examine a sediment core, find out about new developments, and discover ancient diatoms (single-celled marine organisms). How do ANDRILL scientists drill and retrieve sediment cores from under the ice and sea, and why do they do it?
