When Scott of the Antarctic ventured into the Dry Valleys in 1903, he famously dubbed them “Valleys of the Dead”. Over 100 years later, modern science is proving Scott wrong and these valleys are home to abundant and diverse microbial life. Listen to the fascinating story of the hunt for life in the infamous Dry Valleys.
