Caption This is a view of the Antarctic borehole as viewed through a germicidal UV collar. The collar is used to prevent contamination of the subglacial environment and to recover clean samples for microbial analyses. The collar is about five feet across while the borehole is 20 inches in diameter and reaches down 2,625 feet below the surface. (Photo by Alberto Behar, JPL/ASU.
