going to have to agree.. there are alot of research bases there for many countries and have not found anything. Last i heard they were takeing core samples of previouse life in microbs found in the deep ice but that was it

Do you realise how big Antarctica is? They could have thousands of research facilities there and not even cover 5% of the land mass. I would figure this stuff to be pretty deep into the land. I also cant say that i agree with the whole theory, just cant be dismissed on the grounds that "there are research bases there." Theres also oil rigs in the ocean yet we have only explored like 1% of it, kinda like theres satellites in space, ok you get the point.

Fair comment. At the same time, on the balance of probability; what do you believe?

Has a century of Antarctic research by opposing nations somehow overlooked a dimensional gateway? Have they took us to the brink of nuclear Armageddon (Cold War) and yet shared the secret of an alien world in a hollow Earth? Is it possible that the secret of a hole in Antarctica has been leaked to a few fringe websites?

Or is it probable that there's no hole there, dimensional or otherwise, and that the entire story was made up?

Hey Folks,

If you are up for some exploration Google earth has a strip of higher res images from Antarctica. Just so ya'll know.

I love this topic.....wish there was more seriousness given to exploring Antarctica.

Someone can hopefully help me with the following....

A couple years ago, wasnt there a story of a scientists that saw a vortex appearing in the sky above the south pole...he then got a weather baloon or something similar and let it go up into the sky into the vortex where it disappeared...thing is he had a rope tied to it so it was always there just not visually, and no, it wasnt because of the snow that he couldnt see it.

maybe that is tied into this...Ill have to research this some more.

EDIT: Heres some items I think may be related.

Antarctic Time Warp Discovery



The discovery of a time anomaly in the Antarctic - reported in Pravda yesterday - dates back eight years. Nevertheless, I find it highly interesting that such a discovery was made and that we have heard little or nothing about it in the Western press.

The time anomaly is not the only unexplained discovery in the Antarctic. In April 2001, a spy satellite image apparently located a man made structure under two miles of ice there. The military was less than forthcoming about this discovery, and many will remember a rather strange emergency medical evacuation during the antarctic winter in 2001. This may be connected with a huge lake and corresponding magnetic anomaly discovered under the eastern part of the Antarctic close to - actually right under - the Russian Vostok base there.


I dont know how reliable Pravda is as a source.


This is the story I was mentioning...read the link, heres an exerpt below-


Eight years ago, American and British scientists who conducted investigations in Antarctica made a sensational discovery. US physicist Mariann McLein told the researchers noticed some spinning gray fog in the sky over the pole on January 27 which they believed to be just ordinary sandstorm. However, the gray fog did not change the form and did not move in the course of time. The researchers decided to investigate the phenomenon and launched a weather balloon with equipment capable to register the wind speed, the temperature and the air moisture. But the weather balloon soared upwards and immediately disappeared. In a little while, the researchers brought the weather balloon back to the ground with the help of a rope attached to it before. They were extremely surprised to see that a chronometer set in the weather balloon displayed the date of January 27, 1965, the same day 30 years ago. The experiment was repeated several times after the researchers found out the equipment was in good repair. But each time the watch was back it displayed the past time. The phenomenon was called "the time gate" and was reported to the White House.


Hoepfully someone else can substantiate the sources....I heard this from several different sources quiete a few years ago now but nothing recently.

Well those microbes in the deep ice or from Lake Vostok a fresh water lake that is not frozen even though it is deep beneath the ice. In fact core samples form there show the ice history of Earth for the last 415,000 years. The last time that lake was on the surface was 420,000 years ago...

Here is what the chart from the ice cores at Vostok show us... I would recommend buying warm clothes blankets and firewood




Here is a NASA photo of Lake Vostok. Even though it is 3500 meters below the ice, the ice sheet above it is flat so you can see the lake..

Cross section showing the flat surface and the warm water and the drilling operation



Now one of the biggest thing shown in the NAVY film was the discovery of open warm water lakes that they landed in and were 38 degrees, fresh water. I have not found those yet but I did find something similar. Will post that shortly

So according to Vostok Ice Core samples the climate cycle on Earth shows a short warm period followed by a long triple drop cold period... It also shows that the change is a steep grade, so it happens quickly. And you can see where we are on the recent warm spell...

I put in a wood burning stop I got from John's mine cabin.... I think I may be needing it soon

Interesting... didn't have that yet but it ties in with something else I was following...

First is the fact that RAYTHEON runs McMurdo Station... yawl know who they are right?

Well the coolest thing... when we started looking into it we came across PEGASUS field...
Now how is that for coincidence? Well it seems they have done some major weirdness making the runway at Pegasus strong enough to hold the big C-5 Galaxy transports. Pegasus field is just frozen ice... no land below

Pegasus Field, Antarctica
1956 - Present

Here is a pic of the runway lights. Now not only do we have Raytheon out there but these lights were put there by my favorite group... Naval Space Command aka SPAWAR




A few weeks ago, the electrical crew brought out the runway lights to Pegasus field. These lights were purchased a few years ago by SPAWAR, the Navy branch which ultimately oversees ATS's runway and weather operations.

www.sethwhite.org...

So why is the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) messing around with Raytheon in Antarctica? On PEGASUS field


Runway Project Clears the Way for Improved Antarctic Airlift


The U.S. Air Force has certified a newly constructed glacial ice runway near Antarctica's McMurdo Station as capable of handling large military cargo jets. The certification marks an important improvement in the U.S. Antarctic Program's (USAP) ability to support science research for the National Science Foundation on Earth's southernmost continent. A U.S. Air Force C-141 Starlifter cargo plane landed safely on the compacted snow pavement of the existing Pegasus runway near the USAP's logistical hub at McMurdo on Jan. 29 (local time).



The wheels of a U.S. Air Force C-17 rest comfortably on the surface of the Pegasus runway.

The newly developed compaction process protects the runway from sun damage while having the structural strength necessary to withstand the stresses imposed by the landing of large aircraft such as the C-5 Galaxy, one of the world's largest aircraft; the C-17 Globemaster, the newest air force cargo plane; and the older C-141s.


www.nsf.gov...

So there is a lot going on up there. The NAVY has been down there since 1956

As to the balloon... don't know yet if this ties in to your article but NASA is down there...


The TIGER Mission

TIGER (Trans-Iron Galactic Element Recorder) is a balloon-borne NASA instrument

Now THIS one is REALLY interesting in connection with other dimensions

South Pole Detector Could Yield Signs of Extra Dimensions


Researchers at Northeastern University and the University of California, Irvine say that scientists might soon have evidence for extra dimensions and other exotic predictions of string theory. Early results from a neutrino detector at the South Pole, called AMANDA, show that ghostlike particles from space could serve as probes to a world beyond our familiar three dimensions, the research team says.

Do you have a link to the original document? Last I looked it wasn't easy to find..

But you know as well as I do that when secrets are involved, information changes, gets covered up and even vanishes,,, but sometimes stuff has a way of resurfacing in odd places, like the dead sea scrolls

I was saving this for a rainy day... was going to make a thread ( I guess I still could
)

Well here is something on Admiral Byrd's SNOW CRUISER... bet ya didn't see that before







The immediate purpose of the Snow Cruiser, however, as part of the U. S. Antarctic Service under Admiral Byrd's command, is to speed up exploration work and scientific investigation as well as to claim the continent as a United States possession by maintaining colonies there for three years as required by international agreement. Assisted by a five-passenger airplane, it is believed that the Snow Cruiser will add as much to the knowledge of the South Polar regions in two or three months as all previous expeditions combined. This plane, along with others, is expected to map most of the South Polar Continent by means of aerial cameras. The Snow Cruiser, world's newest and largest automobile, has almost nothing in common with conventional cars except that it runs on four pneumatic tires, but even this comparison is not exact because the tires are so large and soft that a spring suspension is unnecessary. Unlike an ordinary car, it has two engines instead of one, four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering by two levers instead of a steering wheel, two accelerator pedals, two brake pedals, a builtin hydraulic jack on each wheel, enough Diesel fuel for a 5000-mile run (2500 gallons), 1000 gallons of airplane gasoline, bunks for four men and food for a year.



Caption
WHEELS are driven individually by 75 hp electric motors in their hubs. Dr. Thomas C. Poulter, designer of the Snow Cruiser, is shown directly behind the motor.


Caption
ADMIRAL BYRD is shown in the driver's seat grasping the two steering levers. Right lever is for front wheels and left for rear. The four conical buttons directly in front of him are lined up at the center, indicating that all four wheels are pointed straight ahead. The 10 valves at the right and another 10 at the left are for raising and lowering the wheels. Lever to left of cushion operates a controller switch for rear wheel motors. There is a similar lever at right for front motors.


Caption
KINGPIN, about 10 inches in diameter, is shown just to right of front wheel. Note that both wheels are pointed to right to guide vehicle into the parking area.


HELPS ITSELF OUT ... Snow Cruiser came to rest in bed of stream near Lima, Ohio, as shown at left. Hydraulic jacks built into kingpin assemblies lifted body (right) permitting it to be to allow vehicle to be blocked up with timbers. Then wheels were lifted by jacks and timbers placed under wheels. By this method a plank road was constructed to allow vehicle to be backed onto highway.



Caption
TYPICAL CROWD at a country filling station near Pavilion, N. Y., where the Cruiser was stopped for repairs on the right front brake.

The Snow Cruiser was built in three months by the Research Foundation of Armour Institute of Technology which owns the ship. Its construction, costing $150,000, was financed by friends of the Institute and 80 manufacturers. Principal units in its makeup include a special alloy steel body built by the Pullman company, two six-cylinder 672 cubic inch, 150 hp Cummings Diesel engines, General Electric generators and. motors, and controls for steering, braking and jacking, by Hydraulic Controls Inc. The airplane is a specially designed Beechcraft with a 350 hp Wright Whirlwind engine.

I agree, we need the link you asked for but hey Zorgon!! You are a man after my own heart ( well its taken but...
)
Great new info, and look forward to more. I have read pretty extensively on this particular subject and am not convinced but anything to sway this UFO/Alien believer is welcomed. Just tired of the BS stuff that is becoming de rigeur.


And I have contributed to that myself. Unfortunately.

Do you have a link to the original document? Last I looked it wasn't easy to find..


I can link you to a guy who's seen the erased pencil co-ordinates in the diary with his own eyes. If I find a gif of the page, I'll add it later. It's out there somewhere, because it was in the glossy photo section of a book on Byrd. Whatever...


Late the next morning, at DR's request, Goerler drove Ted and DR over to the archives to look at the 1926 diary. When it was brought out, I touched it with the reverence it was due: a book that had physically own deep into the Arctic 1925­1926 (pre­Lindbergh) and then (in 1927) across the Atlantic (soon after Lindbergh)back in a day when almost no one else had the guts to do it.

Within a few minutes, we happened onto p.11 of the diary (our Fig.5 = D 11 = G 84), and my eye caught the time 7:07:10 Greenwich Civil Time written there. Recalling it as the exact time of one of the 1926 sights reported to National Geographic, I excitedly burst out that this was no practice calculation.

We squinted to read the nearly­ erased solar altitude, 192503000 — and I leapt upon a copy of Byrd's typed report to NGS that was sitting just to the left of the diary and feverishly fingered through the pages until finding the 7:07:10 GCT solar altitude in the offcial report.

There it was: 181801800 — a completely different figure. I instantly learned how the expression 'my­ skin­ froze' came to be. From this time, the Byrd claim was irreversibly doomed. The attendant calculations for both figures showed that there was no misprint: the enormous discrepancy was real. At that unforgettable moment, I knew that this was the definitive end to the Byrd 1926 claim.
Page four

He's all excited because the diary would mean that Amunsden was the rightful first guy to get there. On ATS we get involved in the schemes of weirdness and sometimes the 'cover ups' are just national pride trying to lay claim to that which isn't theirs.

Byrd got pretty close and remains a legend whether he got there or not.

Check out this amazing image from the expedition. It's from Popular Mechanics...

Ask yourself this

1.
Why no current unaltered satellite images of the poles? I mean come on, we watch the Space Station rotate around the earth with clear high definition video footage on NASA TV all the time! We have sent craft to Mars that take high resolution images on surface and orbiting almost daily for 3 years.

How then can it be - we have no direct images - high definition of our poles. When you do a search for pole images - there always seems to be a glitch - pixel anomaly or graphic alteration where this entrance would be.

And what about the pole anomaly on Saturn at the poles that we all saw.


2.
Why is it that there have been no current expeditions directly to the poles - independent or otherwise? I know of one public expedition - but that has been trying to get money/donations for years and never went anywhere. That particular expedition has been in the planning for so long - its originator passed away. So why? Red Tape - Lack of Funding?

Why is it a network can't create a reality show - Search for the pole opening or quest to find Middle Earth?
We have Gold Rush, Great Race, Anthony Bourdain, Bizarre Foods, Survivor Man. They expend all these resources for a show based on Worldwide travel, but never anything to the poles - you know - just to see what is there. Why hasn't Josh Gates and Destination Truth ever investigated this opening claim? Really!

Are you telling me people wouldn't be glued every week watching an expedition to the pole opening? There is a reason for that! There is obviously a Worldwide "no access" law that prohibits travel to the specific pole points of interest!

I am just curious - why is that

Especially after the reports, comments by Admiral Byrd? I mean, come on!

If you've got £25k, it's possible to go see for yourself. Google 'South Pole holidays' for more info.

As far as there being no images of the South Pole? Google image search 'Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station.' The base it situated at the South Pole.

The base looking South


The base looking North


Image from the utilidor inside the base. Ya gotta laff huh?


Vostok is a Russian base.
