Search for ‘holy grail’ of ice cores in Antarctica

PM (ABC): Australian scientists are hunting for an ancient ice core that they expect to yield vital evidence about climate change. It's a piece of ice in Antarctica that's more than a million years old. They've used radar to isolate an area in east Antarctica, where they think the old ice is, and they hope to start drilling this summer.
