Welcome to another season of Ice Stories: Dispatches from Polar Scientists. Our intrepid Exploratorium team shares experiences from their visit to Shackleton's hut. This hut is at Cape Royds, where Shackleton mounted an expedition to the South Pole and made a first ascent of Mt. Erebus. Our crew talks with conservators from the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust who are working this season to restore R.F. Scott's hut at Cape Evans and spent three years recently restoring the Cape Royds hut.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
