It’s good to be back at Eye on the Arctic after a two-week long vacation.

At the top of 200 hundred emails and messages I had waiting for me when I came back to was a link to this video. It was forwarded to me by one of our Eye on the Arctic Twitter followers.

It’s a four-minute plus NASA video with some of the best footage from their six-year IceBridge mission. IceBridge is a airborne survey project that they describe as “the largest airborne survey of Earth’s polar ice ever flown.”
