Some people look at the sea as a relaxing playground, a place for champagne and caviar sunsets atop yacht decks following midday PWC frolics through crystal-clear waters. Others will happily give up those tropical comforts to don their Sunday-best polar suits and circle the choppy, sea ice-laced waters of Antarctica on the all-new Ocea Nemo 50 ICE megayacht. This impressive aluminum sea be
An international team of scientists from over 40 organizations around the world has completed the most comprehensive assessment of how Antarctica's ice mass is changing – and as expected, the results are worrying. The Ice Sheet Mass Balance Inter-comparison Exercise (IMBIE) shows that the rate of ice loss – and the resulting sea level rise – has tripled since 2012, compared to a more stead
Over the last few years, there's been growing evidence for a huge, ninth planet lurking on the very edges of the Solar System. The dwarf planets and other icy bodies out there move in mysterious ways that suggest an unseen world is pulling on them, but new calculations suggest that there is no Planet Nine – these distant objects might just be jostling each other like bumper cars...

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

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
