Some researchers from Dartmouth are among the many scientists participating in a research project that involves a ship getting frozen into the Arctic ice for a year. That’s not an original idea – the great polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen did it 120 years ago – but this is a particularly large and well-funded project.

The only problem is that the Arctic is melting so fast that it’s a lot harder to get trapped in the ice for a year than it once was. The ship has finally found the right place, reports NPR.
