lets us look over the shoulders of scientists and glimpse the often-unseen moments of investigation. Take "virtual field trips" to eight observatories -- Arecibo, where astrobiologists search for signs of life beyond the solar system; Las Cuevas, a research station in Central America's largest remaining rainforest; and others. See interviews, photos, and broadcasts that explore the origins of matter, the universe, and life itself. (National Science Foundation)

Everything about Antarctica is extreme. South Pole winter temperatures average around minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and coastal winds can reach 200 miles an hour, powering violent blizzards that last a week at a time. Still scientists come, because the last frontier offers data they can't get anywhere else.
