Summary A thrilling journey to the world's most perilous environment, Antarctic Edge: 70° South joins a team of world-class scientists as they explore the fastest warming place on earth: the West Antarctic Peninsula. Filmed in one of the most perilous environments on the planet, Antarctic Edge brings to us the stunning landscapes and seascapes of Earth's southern polar region, revealing the harsh conditions and huge challenges that scientists endure for months at a time. While navigating through 60-foot waves and dangerous icebergs, the film follows the team as they make land on rugged, inhospitable Charcot Island to study the rapidly declining Adelie Penguin. For the scientists, these birds are the greatest indicator of climate change and a harbinger of what is to come
