Images by Associated Press photographer Natacha Pisarenko gave us an enchanting glimpse of an Antarctic summer. She and reporter Luis Andres Henao followed scientists from different fields searching for alien-like creatures, hints of pollution trapped in pristine ancient ice, leftovers from the Big Bang, biological quirks that potentially could lead to better medical treatments, and perhaps most of all, signs of unstoppable melting.
