Science lab operates inside Norway glacier

Nearly 700 feet (more than 200 meters) under the Svartisen glacier in

northern Norway, researchers are huddled together underground. In the

world's only lab located inside one of these giant hunks of ice, they

are carrying out some of the best experiments on the movement and

composition of glaciers ever done.
