Pole Star


April Whitt
Fernbank Science Center

As part of the International Polar Year (March 2007 to March 2009), scientists are sharing information from both ends of the Earth. Differences between north and south poles are discussed, fall/autumn stars of northern mid-latitudes are pointed out, then the audience “travels” to the north pole to observe the effects of Earth’s rotation. After a discussion of science at that pole, including a transcript of a short NSF video, the audience “travels” to the equator, and then to the south pole. More ice core data, and description of science at the south pole.
