Learn what it means to be a Marine Biologist pushing the limits of exploration as Jon Copley ventures where no human has ever been: over half a mile below Antarctica’s surface. Jon shares his inspiration for becoming a scientist and passion for understanding the unknown.
Experience Mission Antarctica, a multipart digital series that takes you on adventures with the scientists, filmmakers and explorers who helped create the magic you see in the BBC’s landmark nature documentary series, Blue Planet II. This video is a part of Our Blue Planet, a joint venture between OceanX Media and BBC Earth to get people talking about the ocean.
