Obama Inauguration Sparks Antarctic Geologists' Hopes (Video)

Reuters News video: As President Obama gave his inauguration speech in Washington, 15000 kilometres away in Antarctica geologists watched via a laptop computer and the internet with eyes full of hope for the future of their research. While the new president's speech focused on many of his ambitions for the future - Obama's reference to climate change struck a chord with geologists on a research base in Antarctica. They're hoping Obama will continue to increase funding for science so they can study the movement of ice sheets and how they are affected by global warming.Related »
