Penn State University glaciologist Dr. Richard Alley explains why ice is cool. Nadine, a glaciology graduate student from UC Santa Cruz, spent four weeks on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet investigating ice sheets and global climate change. Dr. Tulaczyk, a glaciologist from UC Santa Cruz, studies the lakes, floods, and ice quakes that occur under the giant glaciers of Antarctica. He is among only 200 scientists world-wide who study ice sheet dynamics and its role in climate change. Pulling food to prepare for four weeks at the West Antarctic Ice Sheet camp. Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he explains the difference between floating ice and land ice, and why they effect sea levels differently. Stephanie Chasteen speaks with Jerry Osborne of the University of Calgary about his work studying glaciers to understand how the climate is changing in recent years. How do opera singers sing loud enough to be heard over an orchestra? Can an opera singer's voice really break a wine glass? What's the difference between a baritone and a soprano?

Join us as we talk to mission scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and get the latest on this enigmatic moon. Explore how Mars’s gravity and geology would affect rock climbers, with the Exploratorium's Dr. Paul Doherty. Chris McKay, Planetary Scientist at the NASA Ames Research Center, has traveled the world seeking Mars-like environments. In the Dry Valleys of Antarctica—his favorite Mars analog on Earth—Dr. McKay discovered a kind of algae living inside rocks porous to light and water. He’ll show us some of these rocks and talk about the physical conditions required for life.
