  • February 28, 2006 - World-Class Ice Core Facility - Scoop (GNS Science)
    New Zealand is to get a world-class research laboratory for studying climate history in the Southern Hemisphere. It will be used for storage and analysis of Antarctic and New Zealand glacial ice cores, which are indicators of climate change.

  • February 27, 2006 - Go-ahead For Europe Ice Mission - Tehran Times
    The European Space Agency (ESA) has decided to build Cryosat 2 - a satellite to study the earth's ice sheets. The original was lost in the Arctic Ocean last year when the Russian launch rocket blew up.

  • February 21, 2006 - Scientists Find First Neutrinos in 'IceCube' Project - USA Today
    The IceCube project, launched in 2002, to use the Antarctic ice as a huge telescope for finding neutrinos has paid off. A team of scientists from Japan, headed by Shigeru Yoshida, along with investigators from seven other countries has apparently detected its first neutrinos.

  • February 20, 2006 - Antarctic Enzyme Enters $BN DNA Testing Market - Scoop
    An enzyme derived from a micro-organism found in a volcanic vent in Antarctica by New Zealand scientists is being launched onto the billion dollar global DNA extraction market. This enzyme has taken 20 years to come to the market and is important because it extracts DNA from samples much faster than other extraction methods currently available.
