The University of Arizona Controlled Environment Agriculture Center's food growth chamber is now up and running at the South Pole.

The chamber produces fresh vegetables in nutrient filled water for staff working at the South Pole station where temperatures can sometime fall as low as minus 118 degrees Fahrenheit (-100 C).

The chamber not only provides fresh veggies, it also offers those living at the South Pole a psychological boost.
