GREEN REVOLUTION: DISCOVER

submitted by: nsf
A trip to Snowy River, a bright white crystalline formation found deep within Fort Stanton Cave in New Mexico, reveals a lot about life and energy in unexpected places. Host Lisa Van Pay meets Diana Northup and Monica Moya, researchers who study life in caves. As they explore the cave they ask questions, think of possible answers and ways to test them, and discuss how to share their findings with the community. Together, science and engineering have resulted in advancements that have changed...
