As a video producer for the Ice Stories project at the Exploratorium science museum in San Francisco, I got to spend most of July in Greenland helping report on polar research during this International Polar Year (IPY). And we got to fly in helicopters a lot. This is one of my favorite videos I shot and edited from that trip. Is it any wonder why I had a rocking time! Put on headphones and turn it up.
