are seeking a new safer life in europe or the u.s. . rachel shites has no reason to like germany she was born there before the second world war and within six years had been expelled and most of her family killed but the irony is she now wants a german passport. get money out of the german citizenship to help my children and grandchildren which might be shocking if it wasn't so common in israel today in the last decade some fifty thousand israelis have applied for u.s. citizenship a quarter of a million already have a second passport it's unlikely that any other country in the world has such a large percentage of new immigrants preparing. believe it's really irony of the story because he is or was a stubborn to become a shelter for the jewish people and now europe becomes the shell of the juice leaving. this is my fate the american heart of tel aviv here you'll hear more english than hebrew and you'll be forgiven for thinking that you're in the us and

earth thomas investigates the price that people have to pay to fulfill their passion for new discoveries. antarctic storms are known to be fierce sometimes forcing those who have to endure them to take safe harbor it was pretty bad it was. thirty to thirty five. so it was just rolling around you had to. get in between us. so we were rolling around. trying to make a good road or. the crew of this ship was able to pull through the tempest stand even work with nearby stations to repair their damaged vessel but they were lucky operating in such a remote environment means replacement parts aren't always available and the workers here have to make do with what they can it is pretty hard to get here good equipment to get here sophisticated equipment so. one challenge is to try
10:23 am
to make your big science was a very small amount of equipment because of the hearts and extreme weather conditions there is considered one of the most dangerous environments on the planet and because of this operating down here logistically it can be more than a convenience it can be downright deadly during the same storm the crew from that would go on t.v.'s base lost one of their team when a jeep wall down an embankment into a frigid antarctic lake. that was most difficult experience in my career in such moments i start. just once is to try is out here. but in antarctica time is a valuable commodity and work crews have limited time to prepare the base for winter after the accident happened we didn't even have time to make a stop which the moment required a stop to think to express compassion we had to go on with our work which we finished at about four am the next day the incident sparked an outpouring of international support from the surrounding bases but in
10:24 am
a twist all too appropriate for the harsh realities of working in antarctica the chilean air force plane that was to airlift of the body back to south america suffered an explosion in the left engine as it was taking off the pilots on board of hurting another fatal tragedy by a matter of seconds still the southern continent doesn't provide the opportunity to dwell on the difficulties when the key thing is all problems as soon as possible or the opportunity will be lost when there is no immediate response because shien's and avoid actions that me get hurt for example when the airplane engine failed we have avoided doing anything that could have gotten any of us hurt in any way so we don't have to airlift anybody else of here we have avoided any wrists until another airplane arrives when a system derived from unfortunate necessity which keeps those living and working in the face of danger and safe as possible in antarctica sean thomas. and there are
