Quick, what do you think of when you hear "ice"? Cold drinks? Ice Ages? Glaciers? Zambonis? An archive of Earth's climate spanning millennia?
Ice manifests many forms. It can be as amusing as a carved swan centerpiece, and as serious as predicting global disaster. This world-spanning survey from THE HISTORY CHANNEL® explores the incredible varieties of ice and the surprising part it plays in our lives. Frozen water has played a key role in fashioning our history and today is making its mark as an unusual tool of technology.
