Chasing (Antarctic) Ice

May 9, 2013

Two months of icebreaking in 5 minutes:

Time-lapse of our icebreaker, the Nathaniel B. Palmer, traveling through the Ross Sea, Antarctica. Two months of sequences, condensed into less than five minutes, with a surprise at the end. Enjoy! To learn more about the current movement to protect the Ross Sea, visit http://www.lastocean.org and http://www.asoc.org.

Just another reminder that the Antarctic is special, and should be protected. (Also a great advertisement for a career as an environmental scientist).

PS: If you are not familiar with the story of Nathaniel Palmer, it is a story worth knowing.

    Awesome video. Thanks for sharing. With over 400K views, I’m surprised I’ve not heard about it yet. Late to the party as usual.
