While some may think they’ve seen all they need to see of the vast frozen landscapes of Antarctica thanks to such non-fiction fare as March of the Penguins, it’s hard to deny the strange allure of the region’s icy tundra and the secrets and hidden treasures beneath its frozen surface. Megalab Antarctica follows the adventures and exploits of several scientists attempting to unravel those secrets by conducting experiments and research under some incredibly harsh conditions. From shots of diving under its crystal clear waters (one scientist likens the experience to diving into vodka) to CG depictions of the research conducted, Megalab shines its light on the men and women who brave what this cruel continent throws their way.
