Hello folks, interesting things going on in Antarctica-related news...
The oldest ice ever sampled has been taken by Heinz Miller and crew, of Germany's Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Oceanographic Rearch AWI. The ice, which is about 900,000 years old will be used to map out the history of the world's climate. Drilling was ceased soon after as the drill was approaching a slush-zone, generated by heat from the Earth's mantle.
