The Exploratorium's remote crew has landed in Barrow, AK, to showcase the vast array of science being conducted at this northernmost tip of the continent. Join us for this introduction to Barrow: where is it? why are so many scientists here? why are May and June such important times? At the National Ice Core Lab in Denver, Colorado, scientists study ice cores in a Class 100 clean room lab kept at minus 7 degrees F. In this video, ride in a special Mattracks truck across the ice sheet with geologist Christina Riesselman as she travels with ANDRILL Staff Scientist Richard Levy from McMurdo Station to the ANDRILL drill site. They investigate the truck’s special wheels, observe beautiful panoramas of the Transantarctic Mountains, and hear the drill running at the drill site. Join us for more conversation with David Ainley and other researchers studying Adelie penguins in Antarctica’s Ross Sea. Scientist working on the South Pole Telescope explain data collection, focusing on the telescope's receiver, a precise instrument with a thousand "eyes" pointed to the distant universe. Hear more from scientists working on the Ice Cube telescope at the South Pole. Meet glaciologist Slawek Tulaczyk and his team, who work in the fast-emerging field of ice sheet dynamics. They speak to us just after returning from a month at a remote camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. 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.
