A real-world Jurassic Park is never going to happen, but shooting for a more recent prehistoric era might be more achievable. The Pleistocene Park project is aiming to rebuild a lost Ice Age ecosystem in Siberia, and its directors, the father-and-son team of Sergey and Nikita Zimov, say it could help slow the effects of climate change. Now, the initiative is running a crowdfunding campaign
Mmm, how about adding some agricultural waste to your ice cream? Actually, it might not be a bad idea at all. According to scientists from Colombia's Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana, doing so helps keep ice cream from melting, plus it has some other benefits...Continue Reading Banana waste product makes for slower-melting ice creamCategory: ScienceTags: Agriculture Food
To most of us, ice is just ice. But scientists have categorized no less than 16 types, created under different conditions and featuring different crystalline structures. Most of these have only been created in the lab, but now, geoscientists at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) have discovered a type known as Ice VII (seven) locked inside diamonds. This marks the first time the substa
Driving a vehicle on ice usually means being careful and very slow so as not to slide or lose control. Things we completely threw out the window on a visit to Winter Park, Colorado, for the 2018 Rocky Mountain Redline Ice Driving Adventure, where we were lucky enough to drive a variety of vehicles on ice under the (loose) supervision of race drivers. Here's what ensued and how we escaped with
With winter in full swing in the Northern Hemisphere, 'tis the season for frozen architecture projects, such as the Icehotel and SnowVillage. Similarly, a team of Dutch and Chinese students and professors have built a 31 m (101 ft)-tall ice tower in China that features walls with an average thickness of just 25 cm (9.84-in)...Continue Reading Thin-walled Flamenco Ice Tower rises high in China
Mars may not be as dry as it looks. NASA and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) have used instruments onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) to analyze the vertical structure and thickness of buried ice sheets, which preserve a detailed record of the Red Planet's past and could provide future human explorers with an easily-accessible water supply...Continue Reading 3D scans rev

Bacteria are hardy little creatures, but even they have their limits. One of those was previously thought to be polar ice and snow, but a new study from the University of York has now directly observed bacteria living in those conditions in both the Arctic and Antarctic regions. That discovery has implications for our understanding of the planet's past climate, as well as where we might hope
​A striking 2 a.m. sunrise in Disko Bay, GreenlandThis photograph was taken at 2AM on Disko Bay in Greenland. I had been sailing for several hours between immense icebergs, and the clouds were building in such a way that it was becoming clear that the sunrise was going to be something special.Upon approaching a patterned iceberg floating between smaller pieces of ice, the light struck it from the
The British Antarctic Survey's (BAS) Halley VI Research Station can't seem to get a break. After being forced to move 23 km (14 mi) earlier this year because of a suddenly growing crevice in the Brunt Ice Shelf, the modular outpost is being abandoned for a second Antarctic winter due to the discovery of a second crack that is growing eastward. The 14-person winter crew will now be relocated t
