Alexander Gerst on Expedition

Episode 1: Journey to Antarctica

Astronaut Alexander Gerst is on his way to a new mission. Instead of going into space, this time he is going into the icy expanses of Antarctica. With a team of experts, he travels near the South Pole to search for meteorites – witnesses from outer space that could help us to decipher the past and the future of our home planet. A research adventure that Alexander Gerst has recorded in an impressive video diary.
