As one of five gateway cities to Antarctica in the world, Christchurch has developed strong links with the vast continent
The United States, Italy and Korea have support offices for their national Antarctic programmes based in Christchurch
As New Zealand’s launching pad for Antarctica, Christchurch Airport receives passengers from around the world who will be working in the Ross Dependency, Antarctica.
When Antarctic scientific expeditions began in the 1950s the United States Air Force, Air National Guard and the Royal New Zealand Air Force were stationed in Christchurch as part of Operation Deep Freeze. Sixty years on that partnership has deepened and the operations remain active all year round.
Between September – March Antarctic operations are in full swing. During this period New Zealand Hercules, American C17s Globemasters, Ski-equipt LC130s and other specialist aircraft can be seen on the Apron north of the main passenger terminals, loading freight and personnel for the 4,000kms flight to McMurdo Sound.
During the summer operational season, aircraft make around 100 flights to Antarctica and moving than 5,500 passengers and 1400 tonnes of cargo. Over 75% of the world’s scientists travelling to Antarctica depart from Christchurch.
The United States Navy Antarctic Developments Program, better known as Operation Highjump, led by Richard E. Byrd, is under the operational command of Admiral Richard Cruzens. Some of the vessels involved visit New Zealand ports during the expedition and Byrd visits at the end.

You rarely hear anything about NZ except for when they have earthquakes.
And yet just the day before the massacre:
New Zealand's climate change minister punched in face while on his way to parliament
Which led to him having a black eye the day of the massacre.
James Shaw, sporting black eye after attack, says he still feels safe
The topic of ritual elite black eye came up several times b4.
BRITAIN has closed down its Halley base in Antarctica as fears grow that an ice shelf the size of Manhattan could break away from the mainland. Staff have now left the British Antarctic Survey base, departing just days after Nasa revealed aerial photos showing an enormous rift in the ice shelf.
. [Antarctica’s] coordinates were part of the numbers that he heard in the mind control lab early on that led us there. To me, to us, to the show, the Antarctic holds a lot of secrets and ties back to Operation Highjump, this link opens in a new tab, which happened in the early ‘40s following World War II when our government [and] military felt that the Nazis had discovered alien technology and bases in the Antarctic. There’s a lot of sort of energy around it now — by that I mean, a lot of curiosity about what’s going on in the Arctic right now where you can see pyramids on Google Earth. There’s a lot of mythology that we’re trying to tap into.
According to what Project Blue Book’s showrunner told EW, Antarctica will be the gateway to a lot of story in Season 2.
