    Frozen Earth also chronicles how the concept of the ice age has gripped the imagination of scientists for almost two centuries. It offers an absorbing consideration of how current studies of Pleistocene climate may help us understand earth's future climate changes, including the question of when the next glacial interval will occur.   The evidence for Snowball Earth is written on every continent today. Thanks to Julio Lacerda and Franz Anthony from Studio mya for their wonderful illustrations. You can find more of their work.

The exoplanet is orbiting Barnard's star, the closest solitary.

      Directed by Frant Gwo. With Jing Wu, Chuxiao Qu, Guangjie Li, Man-Tat Ng. As the sun is dying out, people all around the world build giant planet thrusters to move Earth out of its orbit and sail Earth to a new star system. Yet the year journey comes with unexpected dangers, and in order to save humanity, a group of young people in this age of a wandering 6/10(K). Ambitious and epic in scale, Frozen Planet is the ultimate portrait of the polar regions, capturing all the fragile, jaw-dropping beauty and majestic power of the elements, in the greatest wildernesses on Earth.
