East Antarctica

Cross a treacherous crevasse aboard a Pisten Bully (a giant snow bulldozer) with Dr. Philipp Heck as he joins Dr. Dale Andersen's team along the shores of Antarctica's frozen Lake Untersee. This is the second installment in a series of video journals by Dr. Heck documenting the 2012 joint expedition between The Field Museum, the Geological Survey of India, the Russian Antarctic Expedition, and the SETI Institute. The expedition itself was sponsored by The Tawani Foundation.
