State Fair University: How to walk in Antarctica

MPR’s Morning Edition crew has set out to learn something new about the world each day of the state fair, and today they found a group of scientists and map-makers from the Polar Geospatial Center at the University of Minnesota who are closely studying Antarctica.

Producer Jeff Jones met one of the team’s cartographers, Brad Herried, in the U of M building at the fair and learned how to take a walk in Antarctica.
