Earth's Poles

Sunday February 15, 2009

I was guided to blog about the Earth's Poles so I chose the south pole - more specifically Antarctica as it called to me. Always in synch is the Astronomy Picture of the Day from NASA ... then on and on I blogged. Before I knew it, I had found all sorts of interesting information, especially the videos. Later in the day I found the articles about marine life at both poles and how many of the species are the same. How do you think that came to pass?

In the News - Something to Ponder ...
The polar oceans are not biological deserts after all. A marine census released 7,500 documented species in the Antarctic and 5,500 in the Arctic, including several hundred that researchers believe could be new to science. In one of the biggest surprises, researchers said they discovered dozens of species common to both polar seas - separated by nearly 7,000 miles (11,000 kilometers). Now they have to figure out how they separated.
