Upcoming Episodes

  • Mystery Beneath the Ice

    A research mission to the Antarctica explores what may be behind the plummeting population of the krill, a transparent, shrimp-like creature that's an important cog in the Antarctic ecosystem. Since the 1970s, the krill numbers have declined, though no one knows why. One theory: the krill's life cycle is linked to the seasonal increase and decline of the Antarctic ice pack, which has been altered by climate change. (60 minutes)
