What is it like working in Antarctica? How do scientists cope with such extreme conditions ensuring they get the data they need while also limiting their impact on some of the last pristine environments on the planet? Meet a scientist who spends weeks at a time sampling isolated and remote lakes in Antarctica, oases for cyanobacteria. These tiny organisms have a lot to answer for, from lethal toxic blooms in our modern oceans to alternative medicine and lots inbetween.
