Cruising Green: Ice Breaker

Marine scientist Cassandra Brooks strapped a camera to the front of NSF’s icebreaker the Nathaniel B. Palmer as it sailed for two months through the ice-choked Ross Sea off Antarctica. But unlike her, you don’t have to sit through two-months of ice smashing while fighting your shipmates for the last fresh vegetable to enjoy the Southern Ocean. She has condensed the voyage into a fascinating 5-minute time lapse. The stunning visuals combined with her wonderfully uncluttered narration is just perfect. Great descriptions of sea ice and penguins that are really frickin’ cute at artificially high speeds.
