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
Simple black and white volumes form this home in Quebec City, which was built by local firm PARKA Architecture for a professional ice hockey player and his family. Read more
An international team of scientists has discovered evidence of water ice around the equator of Mars – a region in which it was believed the vital resource would be unable to survive. The ability to mine and process ice deposits could make future manned exploration of the Red Planet much easier, as it can be used for drinking water, and even as an element in the manufacturing of rocket fuel...
