Packing For Antarctica

Produced by

Dick speaks with scientist John Priscu, who is getting ready for a 10-day trip to drill into a subglacial lake in Antarctica. There are tons and tons of equipment that they will drag across the ice in tractors. The goal is to find out what is in the water under the ice - and they hope to find evidence of life. The research will also shed light on climate change. Follow the project here.
