A Shifting Continent

Antarctica is an inhospitable desert of ice, shifting in slow motion over hundreds and thousands of years. With virtual reality we highlight the beauty of the continent, set foot on spectacular cliffs where no human has ever stood, and show the movement of massive ice sheets that hold enough water to raise global sea levels by 200 feet. Stand among the penguins and seals that live on the ice, and ride along with scientists in military aircraft as they fly over Texas-sized plains of floating ice, using suites of instruments to study this least understood continent.
