NOVA's Mountain of Ice
 

The new site features Jon Krakauer and Liesl Clark on pioneeering a new route to the highest peak in antarctica. Log-on to the “Mountain of Ice” companion Web site today and tune-in to the broadcast on February 11, 2003 at 8 PM ET on PBS.
Search URLwire archives since 1994 
In January 2001 an eight-person NOVA team stood atop the highest peak in Antarctica, Mt. Vinson, having arrived by a difficult, unexplored route. Among them were author and climber Jon Krakauer and acclaimed mountaineer Conrad Anker. 

To scale the peak, the team battled 60-mile-an-hour winds and temperatures as low as 35 degrees below zero. "Mountain of Ice," airing Tuesday, February 11 at 8 PM ET on PBS, chronicles their daunting journey as well as their efforts both to measure the rate of snow accumulation in Antarctica's highest mountains and to take the first high-precision GPS reading from Vinson's summit. (Their measurement came in at 16,067 feet, ten feet higher than previously measured.) 

On the companion Web site, hear from both Krakauer and NOVA producer Liesl Clark, who describes the challenges of making a high-definition film while being the first woman to scale Vinson along this route. 

Feature on the site include...

Krakauer on Antarctica
The bestselling author of Into Thin Air describes what distinguishes the white continent from anywhere else in the world.

The Making Of
Producer Liesl Clark gives a personal account not related in the film -- that of the expedition's three-person film crew.

The Ice: Growing or Shrinking?
Glaciologists are unsure whether Antarctica's ice sheet is getting bigger or smaller, but they do fear that the western portion could collapse. View some chilling hypothetical consequences if that were to transpire.

Life Cycle of a Glacier
Follow the adventures of a single snowflake as it takes residence in a glacier and goes for a 1,000-year ride.
