For generations, scientists have been exploring the delicate balance of ice, water, and life. By studying the ecosystems thriving in the Arctic and Antarctic regions, we can understand how their survival is intertwined with our own. We'll also explore how ice shapes the landscape and natural systems on other planets and moons in our Solar System, expanding our understanding beyond Earth.
