Documentary Description


NASA is embarking on an airborne campaign to the southern end of the world -- Antarctica -- to study the massive ice sheets on that continent. "Operation Ice Bridge" gets underway today, and NASA is going to take you there. See what we've got planned. Operation Ice Bridge, a six-year NASA field campaign, is the largest airborne survey of Earth's polar ice ever flown.
