Instead of all the speculation we should just check in with Al Gore. I am sure he knows what the heck is going on.

Oh, there are even more interesting events in Antarctica:

What about the ongoing research at Lake Vostok?

What about the ongoing research at IceCube neutrino observatory placed 8000 feet below the ice surface?

What about the dramatic rescue of an American scientist at McMurdo a couple of years ago?



What about them?

Can you post some more info? Or at least a few links?

I don't know about any of this...



Thank you for asking! Yes, I will, just give me some time to write a proper answer!

Just thinking out loud here but if there is/was a land beyond the pole or whatever then perhaps it is not actually on this planet.

Maybe what they are keeping secret is some sort of "anomaly/ gate/ portal" to another place - be that different planet/dimension or whatever.

This would explain a lot of the stories and the amazing sights they describe as anything not of this planet is likely to be VERY different.

Maybe we are also visited from the 'other side' and who's to say there aren't others in equally inaccessible places. After all if I had been using this door to elsewhere and saw the way this planet's inhabitants behaved, especially the gov'ts/leaders then I would build others in extremely remote/ inaccessible places as a back up for when the humans discovered it. (That sacred mountain in the Himalayas / deep in the jungle / bottom of the Ocean..)

Now I'm thinking of MIB HQ being based down there - passport please

Now, let´s see...

Lake Vostok is the largest subglacial lake in the Antactica, situated about 4000 meters below the ice surface. It is a fresh water lake and when it´s presence was confirmed in 1993 since a theory about it´s existence was formed in 1955-1956. After many years of planning and attempts to drill through the ice, the Russian drilling project succeeded in 2012 and again at least in 2015 when a sample of fresh water was retrieved. There are theories that the water is between 14 and 20 million years old (!?) and that the project would reveal alien life forms.

So far, findings of unique bacteria has been found, app. 3400 different types of organisms has been documented, half of these are totally new to science. Many of these are in turn believed to survive climates on for example Jupiter´s moon Europa. Not that lot of publications has come out of this highly interesting exploration which of course has led to speculations of what Russia is hiding...

Read more (just a few of many sources):
3400 new organisms
Speculative article about alien life forms
ATS megathread about Lake Vostok

IceCube Neutrino Observatory is also fascinating, with its almost 6000 optic sensors, detecting neutrino. The best description can be found on their homepage (source):



IceCube is a particle detector at the South Pole that records the interactions of a nearly massless subatomic particle called the neutrino. IceCube searches for neutrinos from the most violent astrophysical sources: events like exploding stars, gamma-ray bursts, and cataclysmic phenomena involving black holes and neutron stars. The IceCube telescope is a powerful tool to search for dark matter and could reveal the physical processes associated with the enigmatic origin of the highest energy particles in nature. In addition, exploring the background of neutrinos produced in the atmosphere, IceCube studies the neutrinos themselves; their energies far exceed those produced by accelerator beams. IceCube is the world’s largest neutrino detector, encompassing a cubic kilometer of ice.


The observatory will also do research about cosmic events like gamma ray outbursts.

In Antarctica, you also have the South pole observatory which is specialized on research about among other things cosmic background radiation, the mystery of dark matter and incoming light in rhe redshift region.The observatory is able to detect very fine nuances since it is placed on high altitude and the air is thin and very dry. There has been speculations about detecting Nibiru. Read more at the official site.

As for the dramatic rescue of an American scientist during the harsh winter in Antarctica in August 2012, there have been quite a lot of cryptic articles, not saying that much. There was reported that a American had been taken ill or had been injured, thus demanding the very dangerous flight and rescue at the polar station of McMurdo. It was believed that the patient needed "corrective surgery" but that the expedition was very secretaive about what ahd happened.

One of the longest articles I have found is this article from Radio Australia.

The McMurdo polar station was at the time just starting up the project of drilling to the surface of year another subglacial lake, Lake Whillans, and the project reached its goal in January 2013. Read more here.

Now, of course, these projects and events can seem to be isolated and not interesting but I find it quite interesting that there are so many projects going on in these very exclusive laboratories and sites. Of course, it is easy to get to Antarctica but it still demands some kind of work to get there, even if the flight from Cape Town now only takes about six hours.

Buzz Aldrin was rescued after he, what he said himself, retracted high altitude sickness with fluid in his lungs while visiting the area, but it is not mentioned where he was. He was flown to McMurdo station which is situated at the coast and from there rescued to New Zeeland.

McMurdo is also the place of the memorial bust of Admiral and freemason Byrd, the leader of the infamous Operation Highjump (1946-1947) which I believed started in Ross Sea(?).

I hope I have given you a bit more to think about - the Antarctica is filled with interesting "projects"!

If a part of Antartica breaks off the water levels around the world will rise dramatically. How dramatic? Islands disappearing and some nations losing part of their lands to water. How significant? Death in the millions.


If all the ice in the world melted the sea level would rise by an estimated 200 feet over the whole planet.If just the north polar ice cap melted,the sea level would stay the same,or some say it could even drop as all that ice floating in the sea displaces more water than it contains.
It's been covered in ice for something like 20 million years now,as we've only known of it's existence for about 200 years,how do we know this sort of thing isn't just part of a regularly repeating natural cycle?

It is strange that a lot of people are going down there.. Also that wikileaks released pictures of Antarctica? For what purpose? Is there something their not telling us? It's hard to believe they have been studying , ice, atmosphere and meteorites all this time. I'm leaning more in the direction now that Antarctica is Atlantis and through a crustal displacement that happened fairly quickly days to weeks it settled at the South Pole and froze. Maybe they are down there more for archaeological reasons. Whole ancient cities could be under ice. Animals frozen. This could also be why they want to shut down coal mines. Ancient tropical forest have been found underground. One of the largest is in Illinois. Imagine what kind of artifacts are down there waiting to be found.

I'll leave this here:

imgur.com...

Description:

Either it's the best fakes up till now, or UFO's have been confirmed...

I am shocked. It looks very real. People always say: "omg so out of focus", ya ok. This looks like it's from some goddamn science fiction movie. I'm currently going through the listed source (reddit a YEAR ago!) to see if it's hoaxed

Edit: The photos seem to originate from a french magazine called "Top Secret" somewhere around May 2015. Here is the french article which lists the photo's:omg

Here is the Top Secret issue 79 page, the "Acheter" button (Buy) doesn't seem to work proporly: disclosure?

A rough translation from the article (My french could use work)

"Researcher Alex Mistretta offered these files to Black Vault website in 2015. He got them from an anonymous sorce within Europe. In march 1971, the USS Trepang, a nuclear submarine was doing a routine scientific/militairy excercise near the Arctic Ocean (which is the North Pole i just realized, but f it). Not sure where it happened, somewhere near a Jan Mayen area in the Atlantic ocean. -I'm not sure what exactly they're trying to say- Officer named "John Kilika" saw the object for the first time through a periscope; an unnamed officer took the photos later."

This added text: "« Photographie officielle. Ne pas publier. CT. » et « Unauthorized Disclosure Subject. Security Certificate SSN 674. Criminal Sanction. »" roughly means: "< Official Photograph. Do not publich. CT >« Unauthorized Disclosure Subject. Security Certificate SSN 674. Criminal Sanction. »"

Then they seem to validate some of the claims by saying: "SSN 674 est le numéro de classification officielle attribué à l’USS Trepang. En outre, le sous-marin nucléaire était effectivement dans la zone à cette période." which means: "SSN 674 is the official classification number given to the USS Trepang. Also, the nuclear submarine was effectively in that zone during that time." They don't link how/where they verified this.

They mention an Admiral "Dean Reynolds Sackett" being onboard the submarine, which they verified, but the "ici" (here) link doesn't work.

Then they speculate a bit about their shapes and sizes.

i'm pretty flabbergasted!

Great information!

Thanks for sharing and please continue to post things like this as you'll find a lot of intelligent *very* curious people here at ATS.

BTW - I had noticed that you only had about 75 posts and assumed you were a new member, but I now see you've been here for about 5 years. Glad you decided to start posting Aurvandil.

And on a final note - why a semi obscure norse demigod for a username? Just curious...

Delaware is like a speck in the ocean, the weight of the iceberg will not displace the ocean more when it melts.


I think the idea is the iceberg will float away to a location that's warmer. And will then melt.
Right?

This happens constantly, and always has. It's where icebergs come from in the southern hemisphere.


And what about this? Completely different glacier...

Antarctic Glacier cracking from the Inside Out.

At some point, people have to pull their heads out of their asses and realize something big is going on. Something the likes of which have never been seen in recorded history.

The whole "nothing to see here" crap just doesn't wash anymore.



Sorry friend but Trump won so global warming is now officially not real.

How about waiting until he gets in office and his cabinet picks become actual cabinet members and they begin to *actually* govern before assuming anything as fact. Especially regarding the more hot button issues.

A novel concept, I know. But truth and reality matter. They really do.

Everything else - and I mean *everything* - is simply someone's opinion or wish. Period.

Get back to me/us when something actually happens - ok?

From November 10-12, Secretary Kerry will travel to Antarctica, where he will visit McMurdo Station, the largest research station of the U.S. Antarctic Program, as well as surrounding areas on Ross Island, and the U.S. Government’s Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. He will be the first Secretary of State and the most senior U.S. government official to ever travel to Antarctica.



At McMurdo Station he will meet with scientists and researchers studying a wide range of subjects in the extreme south of the planet, including climate change. He will also see firsthand part of the recently established Ross Sea Region Marine Protected Area, the world’s largest marine protected area (1.55 million square kilometers or 598,000 square miles). The Secretary will be hosted by the U.S. National Science Foundation, which manages the U.S. Antarctic program.

The research base is mainly a Science Facility - McMordo Station

interesting the odds that, secretary of state kerry was there, Aldrin was evactuated and the most recent ice cracking ( that happens daily there )

Hi!
Sorry to not answer you, I have been busy with Christmas preparations!

Thank you so much for your response! Glad you found the information interesting!

I have been around at ATS for a couple of years, as you have seen, but I rarely post. I prefer to read since I think there are so many knowledgeable people here anyway. But once in a while, when I see something is not mentioned that might be of interest, I post, just as in this case. The case of Antarctica is very intriguing.

Ah, about my name - being a big Tolkien fan I tried to register Earendel just to see that it was taken. Since I also am Scandinavian, what better than to choose the Norse name of the star - Aurvandil. Aurvandil, the Star Wanderer, the Skywalker, is a fascinating and very obscure tale, also linked to Amletus/Hamlet of Shakespeare. Norse mythology is also one of my big interests along with almost every other mythological and occult topic you can think of.

I am very glad to have made your acquaintance here on ATS, hope to hear from you again!

No worries re: delayed reply. Tis the season and all that.

Plus, I'm not thin skinned and don't need constant reassurance that I matter


I too am Scandinavian (Heil Norge!) which is why I knew the genesis of your username. Only 25% though as my maternal grandparents literally met right off the boat in Ellis Island. She was from Norway, and he from Italy. At least on my paternal side I'm all Scotsman! So I guess I'm a true American....or a greasy viking that likes to cook while wearing a kilt...lol.

I'm also a big Tolkien fan so we already have a little in common. And I am a Shakespeare fan so knew of the mention in Hamlet.

What's wrong with us?
