Follow the experience of the close-knit communities of scientists, engineers and hardened field vets that have forged an existence unlike anything in our planet, fighting brutal conditions to conduct crucial science.
In two weeks, science in Antarctica will shut down for the winter. Scott Base has a heavy load of logistics to manage in order to send teams out to finish their missions for the season. The USS Coast Guard crew is yet again challenged by their aging ship as they try to finish cutting a channel in the ice before they escort the Ocean Giant in. Meanwhile, the Mt. Erebus team struggles to salvage as much data as they can before they go home.Watch Now:Amazon
Six different teams of scientists arrive on the continent after years of planning. The continent is home to the coldest, windiest, driest conditions on the planet, and without Scott Base as their central hub, these teams wouldn't survive. Each team's results could have massive implications to better understanding how climate change is affecting life around the world.Watch Now:Amazon
As winter approaches, field teams are finishing up their science for the season. It’s the last chance to obtain information for their research on the frozen continent. As most people are preparing to leave, a container ship is on its way in to supply food and materials to the skeleton crew that remains during the cold, dark winter months.Watch Now:Amazon
