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?

00:03:24
What is dark energy? Cosmologist Rocky Kolb explains how the South Pole Telescope will help us understand the properties and nature of this mysterious force.

Watch ANDRILL scientists examine a sediment core, find out about new developments, and discover ancient diatoms (single-celled marine organisms).

00:23:36
How do ANDRILL scientists drill and retrieve sediment cores from under the ice and sea, and why do they do it?

00:31:34
Join us for an overview of the ANDRILL (ANtarctic geological DRILLing) Project, a multinational collaboration among 200-plus scientists, students, and educators from five nations, to recover sediment cores (layered sections of earth) from under the Antarctic ice and seas.

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.

00:03:09
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.
