The coldest place on Earth. The windiest. The driest. The kind of home only a penguin could love.
By international agreement, nobody resides permanently on the planet’s southernmost continent. As a consequence, only a handful of scientists and support staff have experienced Antarctica’s extreme landscapes and bountiful wildlife for any length of time since its discovery in 1820.
