"Future Earth" is a four-part doc series on the planet, premiering this weekend. The first episode follows a you've-got-to-be-kidding-me expedition of scientists on a boat to the Arctic, where they plan to run aground on an ice floe, freeze themselves in, and drift for two years to gather data on Arctic ice, the Arctic Ocean and climate change.

The show is on Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
