I received belated notification of this, so sorry for the short notice. Since Monday through to today (Wednesday) CBS Evening News reporter John Blackstone has been taking a journey to the bottom of the earth, for an in-depth look at Antarctica.
Tonight Blackstone will go inside the hut of explorer Robert Scott that was built in 1901 and remains exactly the same today. He will also examine the issue of garbage in a country that brings recycling to a whole new level.
On Tuesday he explored scientific factoids about Antarctica from ice bubbles that are samples of the earths ancient atmosphere to scientific gadgets drilling down to detect particles from space that travel right through the earth…and may reveal how the universe was formed.
It is also worth noting that since the last time he trekked to the Arctic (9 years ago), the average temperature has dropped four degrees. Watch it all on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric at 6:30 PM EST.
If you do get a chance to watch it then let us know what you thought.
