Watch a Camera Take a 1,000-Foot Dive Down an Antarctic Ice Shelf

Everything’s harder in Antarctica, and that includes reaching the ocean. On a recent expedition to the frozen continent, scientists melted a nearly 1,200-foot-deep borehole through the Ross Ice Shelf in order to access the icy seawater beneath it.
