Two groups of scientists from Portugal join forces on a quest to find out more about Mars. They study images sent back by spacecraft, showing terrains that look like huge jigsaw puzzles of polygons. Similar terrains are found on Earth all over the Arctic.
In this film we follow the team on a field campaign to Svalbard, up in the Arctic. It is a unique view behind the scenes of what it means to be a scientist today and what drives people to research such exotic topics.
The film was produced in 2012 by Lightcurve Films with the support of the Portuguese national TV channel RTP2, the Portuguese Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, TAP Portugal, SAS Scandinavian Airlines and AVINOR.
