Continent 7: Antarctica 南極洲大探險 Follow a group of scientists as they travel to the ends of the Earth.
Antarctica is a giant continent that is twice the size of Australia and even bigger than Europe. The cold, harsh climate of Antarctica makes it nearly impossible for humans to travel or live there for any length of time. However, some of the world's bravest scientists and survival experts formed a team to go there to do advanced research on the environment. This month, National Geographic Channel (NGC) presents Continent 7: Antarctica, about the people who work in one of the coldest places on Earth.
Besides terribly cold weather and extreme conditions, the trip is extremely dangerous for the group when they are in Antarctica. Strong winds can blow away tents and equipment in seconds. Since most of the traveling is done on ice, the crew's heavy machines can cause cracks or big holes where they could fall to their deaths. The scientists and survival experts know the dangers involved. However, they care about the future of the planet so much that they want to help protect it for everyone. If you are interested in seeing what happens at one of the most dangerous places on the planet, then check out Continent 7: Antarctica on NGC this month.
