Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA Goddard and features a look at the recent 88-South Antarctic Traverse, where a team of 4 scientists spent 14 days crossing 750 kilometers of the South Pole.

NASA cryospheric scientists Kelly Brunt and ICESat-2 Deputy Project scientist Tom Neumann detail the triumphs and challenges of the trip, which was designed to gather Antarctic elevation data and mapping for the next ICESat-2 mission.
