Experimental physicist Carl Haber restores antique audio recordings too old, fragile, or damaged to be otherwise replayed—including recordings made in wax, soot, and foil.

We tour the NOAA Atmospheric Research Observatory at the South Pole where scientists are monitoring carbon dioxide levels, CFCs, solar radiation, and the ozone hole.
