In this program, Dr. Slawek Tulaczyk and Dr. Brent Christner talked about the liquid water that is formed under the nearly two-mile thick Antarctic ice sheet and ways scientist are exploring what this water contains and how it is formed. Additionally, they presented information about life in the cold, how the liquid water is a habitat for microbial life and how the work done by scientists in Antarctica has icy implications for astrobiology.
