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. PeaCe
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.
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.

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.
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.
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 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.
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.

The original document casts doubt on Byrd's plane reaching the Pole which naturally undermines the notion of him discovering a hole at the Pole...in a separate dimension or otherwise.
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.
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.
Do you have a link to the original document? Last I looked it wasn't easy to find..
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.

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.
