A team of LSU scientists are literally breaking the ice when it comes to life on the world’s coldest continent.
The research crew has brought back thousands of pounds of ice core samples to the campus from Antarctica.
In these samples they've found evidence that backs up new scientific theories that not all organisms stop functioning when frozen.
For this team- its a huge discovery. Up until a couple years ago, it was believed the southernmost continent was too cold to support any kind of life.
