A new research station at the bottom of the world may give future Antarctica researchers some special treats, like the ability to live above ground and look out a window.

German scientists are adapting a habitat designed by the European Space Agency (ESA) to replace the shifting, disappearing and aging Neumayer II Research Station, a pair of metal tubes buried amongst the snow of the Ekstrom Ice Shelf in Antarctica's Atka Bay.

I don't understand why people would want to live on Antartica. It's cold, snowy and I could not do it. But if there were researchers there I could understand but just living there on you're own on a freezing continent is not my cup of tea.
