A band of international scientists and technologists from 8 countries have joined together to explore one of earth's final frontiers. A continent-wide approach to exploration will redefine how Antarctica is viewed. The program will also provide clues to the distant past of Antarctica and the onset of glaciation. The most intriguing questions relate to who lives in these environments and how do they make a living. The presence of microbial ecosystems is almost assured and how they have survived at the edge of life will provide clues to where we might find life elsewhere in the solar system.
