Antarctica is melting so fast that scientists are proposing shooting artificial snow out of cannons to slow it down
Two glaciers in Western Antarctica are on the verge of collapse. Scientists say dumping trillions of tons of artificial snow could stop the melt.
One of Antarctica’s biggest glaciers will soon reach a point of irreversible melting. That would cause sea levels to rise at least 1.6 feet.
Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier could pass a tipping point that causes it to lose all of its ice in 150 years. Sea levels would rise by 1.6 feet.
Beloved submarine Boaty McBoatface has made a critical discovery about rising seas on its maiden voyage in the Antarctic
Boaty McBoatface, the beloved yellow submarine of internet fame, made a discovery about climate change during its first voyage in the Antarctic.
A pirate-fighting sailor wants to lasso and tow a 125-million-ton iceberg from Antarctica to solve South Africa’s water crisis
South Africa's capital is emerging from a water crisis. One man wants to tow an Antarctic iceberg north and convert it into drinking water.
Ice sheets are melting far faster than we thought — in a worst-case climate breakdown, coastal cities like New York and Shanghai would be swampe...
Scientists have underestimated how much sea levels will rise by 2100. A new study shows that oceans could rise by 6.5 feet, swamping coastal cities.
The Polar Star makes a resupply trip to Antarctic research stations each year, but the journey is increasingly challenging for the aging icebreaker.
Antarctica is about to lose an iceberg 30 times the size of Manhattan as two cracks converge — and it could cripple a British research station
NASA is tracking two converging cracks in Antarctica's Brunt Ice Shelf. When they meet, an iceberg 30 times the size of Manhattan could float away.
There’s a cavity underneath Antarctica that’s two thirds the size of Manhattan — a sign ice sheets are melting faster than we though...
Nearly 14 billion tons of ice have melted underneath Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier, leaving an almost Manhattan-sized cavity beneath the surface.
Paleontologists discovered a tiny dinosaur relative at the South Pole, which they've named "Antarctic King." The fossil is some 250 million years old.
Parts of the Midwest are colder than Antarctica due to a polar vortex. Can you guess which photo was taken where?
The Midwest is experiencing a polar vortex with subzero temperatures colder than Antarctica right now. Can you tell the two places apart in photos?
