    Default Halley VI Research Station In Antarctica

    In terms of sheer size, the Antarctic Desert is the largest desert on Earth, measuring a total of 13.8 million square kilometres.

    Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, and most isolated continent on Earth, and is considered a desert because its annual precipitation can be less than 51 mm in the interior. It's covered by a permanent ice sheet that contains 90% of the Earth's fresh water.

    People can easily be sunburnt very quickly in Antarctica even when wearing high levels of UV protection.

    Temperatures in Antarctica near the South Pole can reach as low as −89.2C (−128.6F; 184.0 K.)

    The Southern Lights (Aurora Australis) can be seen in the Antarctica continent.

    Halley Research Station is a research facility in Antarctica on the Brunt Ice Shelf operated by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). The base was established in 1956 to study the Earth's atmosphere. Measurements from Halley led to the discovery of the ozone hole in 1985.

    The current base is the sixth in a line of designs to overcome the challenges of building on a floating ice shelf where they become buried and crushed by snow. Despite moving the buildings 23 km "inland", concern over the propagation of an ice crack resulted in the base being left unmanned for the winters of 2017, 2018 and 2019.

    A woman with a very loud Australian accent, Englishmen, Scotsmen, an Irishman, and others with various accents, describe life in Antarctica, where medical experts, surgeons, researchers, etc, live together inside the state-of-the-art and adjustable design of the Halley VI Research Station.

    The territorial disputes between the UK, Argentina, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, the US, France, Russia, etc, are shown in the short video below over who owns Antarctica. There's no customs or borders checks in Antarctica.



    I think Antarctica belongs to the native penguins first and foremost.

    A spokes-penguin from the Antarctic Penguin Association states: 'Aye, we penguins were here first and this is our land;- we're the original inhabitants... so the rest of you illegal aliens in our continent can sod off, mate!'
