Many of us may choose to burn the midnight oil, and we discuss how these late hours may be used for creative endeavours and pursuits of the mind. We delve into the nocturnal realm of the night garden, a place where flowers bloom in the darkness, heady scents hang in the air, and nocturnal pollinators come out to play. We plunge deep into our oceans, explore their marine biota and witness the bio-luminous worlds that exist in the dark depths. We travel to the most southern reaches of our planet and step out onto the icy plains of the East Antarctic ice sheet where the midnight sun allows the hunt for meteorites to ensue, leading adventure-scientists closer to unlocking the secrets of the universe.
