Antarctic Ice Melting Increasing

For the first time, scientists have managed to demonstrate that ten times more ice melts in the summer months on the Antarctic Peninsula now than it did 600 years ago.

The Antarctic Peninsula is the biggest and most prominent peninsula in Antarctica. It consists of a rugged mountain


Unidentified Life Under Antarctic Ice


Scientist Sergei Bulat said the unknown microbes found in Lake Vostok, located 12,000 feet under the ice, may provide answers to whether life can exist on other planets.

MOSCOW — Russian scientists believe they have discovered new life forms sealed off for millions of years in a subglacial lake deep under the Antarctic ice,


Life Discovered in Unlikely Environment


Scientists drilling in Lake Whillans, a remote body of water buried 2,600 feet below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, have discovered evidence of living bacteria.

The water samples were first removed from the ice sheet at 6:20am on Monday, January 28, by the U.S. research team Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling, or


UFO Spotted Over Antarctic Station


A video taken of the Antarctic research station Neumayer-Station III appears to show what some are calling a UFO over the South Pole.

This YouTube screenshot reveals the blurry object floating above the Neumayer-Station III in Antarctica on Aug. 10, 2012. The object has garnered plenty of UFO claims.

Methane Time Bomb

Scientists say they have evidence that the powerful greenhouse gas methane is escaping from the Arctic sea-bed.

Methane Molecule

Researchers say this could be evidence of a predicted positive feedback effect of climate change.

As temperatures rise, the sea-bed grows warmer and frozen water crystals in the sediment break down, allowing methane trapped
