This Monday through Wednesday CBS Evening News reporter John Blackstone is taking a journey to the bottom of the earth, for an in-depth look at Antarctica.

Check out the story we aired last night - 02/11/2008 Evening News.

Tuesday Blackstone will explore scientific factoids about Antarctica from ice bubbles that are samples of the earths ancient atmosphere to scientific gadgets drilling down to detect particles from space that travel right through the earth.and may reveal how the universe was formed.

Wednesday Blackstone will go inside the hut of explorer Robert Scott that was built in 1901 and remains exactly the same today. He will also examine the issue of garbage in a country that brings recycling to a whole new level.

It is also worth noting that since the last time Blackstone trekked to the Arctic, 9 years ago for CBS, the average temperature has dropped four degrees.

Put on a few layers and catch it all on the *CBS Evening News with Katie Couric* at 6:30 PM EST.
