Seizoen 1 - Aflevering 33 - South Pole Station: Welcome to the South Pole, one of the most isolated places on the planet. For decades, the South Pole has been a haven for astronomy, climatology, and other science fields.

Now, nearly 50 years after the first research station was built, a team of mega-builders is daring to construct a 21st century science research facility: the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. But it will be fraught with challenges - Construction materials must arrive by air -

- and planes can only land here four months of the year.

Worse, builders have just 100 days every season to construct this behemoth, battling the endless snow accumulation and unpredictable weather. If our mega team succeeds they'll pull off the largest construction project ever attempted at the South Pole.

But if they fail, they could leave an entire community hanging on ice.
