Did a search and couldn't find this posted yet - Antarctica being a place of interest with the drilling into Lake Vostok, IMO.

April 14, 2012 – ANTARCTICA - A strong 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck the ocean floor of the Drake Passage between South America and Antarctica at the shallow depth of 9.9 km (6.2 miles). The epicenter of the earthquake was 358 km (222 miles) SSE of Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. The powerful quake is just the latest in a series of earthquakes that have rattled the globe since 8.6 and 8.2 magnitude earthquakes struck off the coast of North Sumatra, Indonesia. –The Extinction Protocol

Mysterious as the frozen continent may be, Antarctica is no different from any other landmass when it comes to the frequency of earthquakes, according to geoscientists.

Agreed on the earthquakes.
I found it interesting considering it was a shallow quake, and anything involving Antarctica has an extra dimension to it, with all the drilling of recent there.
