Main reason is 8 months of winter makes it difficult to even ship things in. The primary reason that a lot of people do not live in Antarctica is because of fuel, and lack thereof. The whole place is focused on the fact that it does not generate energy Lets face it not fun drilling through miles of ice. the terrain is the coldest, driest, most unproductive continent lying at the bottom of the world.

Survival outside is limited to intrepid explorers with months of preparation and specialist equipment and clothing. Without a reasonable means of having shops, houses, entertainment places, and transport and with a consistently miserable climate, who would want to live there?

Yeah, Google Earth is going to show you something that you're not meant to see.

Just waiting for someone to show us some pyramids!

Maybe Lake Vostok has something to do with the reason why there has been no development there....?


I remember reading an amazing thread on here years ago about Vostok. Loved those days on this site.

I can grow anything with some LED lights and some heat . They build Ice hotels and seed vaults and from what I hear it's pretty volcanic underneath all that Ice .
Igloos are insulated . Wood isn't available for fuel but there's enough space for solar panels and I'm pretty sure the winds can power some generators ..

I ve always wondered how antartica looked like during the ice age...and before. If sealevel was down some 100 meters at the time it can not be other than antartica being a well populated continent at the time....if it wasnt frozen as it is now of course.

It must be just the best job in the world to investigate antarica for previous civiliasations.



During the last ice age, the Antarctic ice sheets were more extensive than today - due, as you say, to lower sea levels meaning they had more land to spread across.

notendur.hi.is...

The last time Antarctica was warm enough for temperature lifeforms was back in the Pliocene

And the reason we don't have big settlements on Antarctic is quite simple: why would we? You can't grow anything there - all food needs to be shipped in - there's nothing to do (except climb a few hills and do scientific research) and mining is banned. Oh, and the beaches suck!

Cruise ships carrying more than 500 passengers will be prohibited from landing anyone. Only 100 visitors are to be allowed on shore at any given time, in an attempt to prevent damage to the region's unique ecosystem. The limits, agreed by the 28 countries that have signed the Antarctic treaty, including the UK, are to be imposed as figures show that visitor numbers have risen from 6,700 in 1992 to more than 45,000.


Antarctic cruise tourists lose out as soaring numbers alarm scientists
I was wondering why people thought The Thing was science fiction... when it's plain as day a documenary of antarctica and why more can't go...

Well let's think about these LED lights for growing things that require energy not to mention a heating element for the room. Temperature can get to -80 F. Solar panels 6 months of darkness and then solar panels become almost useless do to the cold e lucky to get 10 percent of their power rating. Winds in Antarctica come in gusts and from varying directions do to the extreme cold so again windmills become useless. So that leaves generators that require fuel now think about how much fuel a hotel would need and the expense of shipping it there in the first place. Ice hotels are some protection from the cold ut not that much as even the one they build every year in Sweden stays at a very chilly 20 F. If room temperature
exceeds 32 F guess what happens. In Antarctica, those same rooms would be very close to zero. Not exactly comfy for a vacation.

Cruise ships being self-contained cities is ok but they were not designed for icy water so very risky.

Veeeery interesting... but nope, that's not it unless I saw it from another angle?

The pic I saw was app 3x larger/thicker (from the max zoomed view I assume) and one "arm" was up and the other out at waste level. It was also a distinct translucent greenish hue that stood out from the surrounding rocks and snow. If memory serves, it was off the mt range that runs up toward Argentina in the archipelago, not that that helps much.

I think she posted it on some blog 3 yrs ago... but it's not my find. I don't want to step on her toes and she kept the exact coordinates to herself, wisely if she's attempting to monetize the find or something, heh, though my own feelings are that land-forms or ancient statues should be free for all.

Please do not refer to it as "Antarctica". It's real name is Palmerland and my family members have a rightful claim to it. Our ancestor, Nathaniel Palmer put that place on the map and tried to sell it to the US but they denied the sale. So, title has been passed down to his progeny. If they develop our land anymore, or attempt to settle, we will seize their assets and kick them out... No joke.

It’s time we start drilling for oil in Antarctica.

if it's true respect my friend . But you have no chance at actually holding on to the claim .

Kinda believe you because you made an account to post ..



Palmer Land is the portion of the Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica that lies south of a line joining Cape Jeremy and Cape Agassiz.


Yeah no chance I'd be the 1st person behind you .

There is something at the bottom of Lake Vostok. I know what it is and who put it there but I'm not saying on here.

There is something strange about Antarctica that is true.

Without going there anyone can say anything they like about that subglacial lake.

However I remember reading about a mysterious structure that was discovered (but never officially investigated) a structure, and it may not actually have anything to do with the NAZI's, it could actually be very ancient since it is an ancient symbol.


And the RUMOUR could be just click bait lies.

However are there story's other than operation High Jump that may back up a NAZI presence even if It was NOT related to any such structure in Vostok, well there is one that I know of but it is ropey at best and may not even be true.
www.abovetopsecret.com...

While I believe it is a place with many mystery's if the NAZIS did get there they later relocated to South America and then probably to the United States itself but I suppose if they WERE there and the mysterious Seismic event about six month's after Byrd's operation High Jump left Antarctica may have just been an earth quake, a volcanic eruption or other natural event and not necessarily a nuclear device detonated beneath the ice or underground to destroy there operation there.

I actually call hoax on the Giant Swastika under the lake, there is no evidence that it links to the sea and the lifeforms found within it are unique so no NAZI's got there even if they did in other parts of the continent, if there is something and it is not a hoax then the remaining answers would be natural but very odd formation, ancient artefact from a previous civilization that would throw history into turmoil so would be disappeared anyway if they could do so, like Waffle rock in the US the remaining fragment of which on display despite looking like fossilized metallic floor grating is easily dismissed and bears resemblance to some natural phenomena but the rest of it now destroyed or buried under the lake was said to be FAR MORE convincing of an ancient artificial origin (very very ancient), or it could be Alien in origin which is pretty unlikely BUT Definitely a possibility as the Antarctic would be prime territory for an alien civilization to set up camp on our little world, lower temperatures keep most terrestrial pathogens at bay and while NOT actually sterile it is far more sterile than other area of the planet reducing the danger of biohazardous encounters or cross contamination for such an alien base and it's occupants (assuming they are biological).

Had the NAZI's reached that lake which we have had great difficulty getting to even with todays technology then they would have contaminated it, the only possibility of them reaching it would be via submarine but there appears to be NO link to the Antarctic ocean and the lake seems to have been isolated for millions of years under the ice.

But you know back to weird, scientists human OR otherwise find such lakes irresistible, isolated biospheres so it could just about and extremely remotely IF it was real be a relic left over from such a scientific endeavour, human or otherwise in origin.

Fact the NAZI's did lay claim to a huge portion of the continent, Fact Doenitz did claim to have built an impregnable fortress for Hitler at the far end of the world, Fact after the war many NAZI scientists and other Germans as well as huge amounts of gold, jewels and looted artefacts as well as probably some secret research vanished and remains unaccounted for even up to today, fact THREE MONTHS after Admiral Doenitz had ordered the German Navy including all it's U Boats to surrender one sailed into Argentina and surrendered there with rumours that it had been SOMEWHERE for those three months and a period leading up to the end of the war including rumours of a bandaged passenger whose face was hidden (a favourite for those that believe Hitler - vile evil man that he was - was alive and escaped the Allies and Russians retribution at the - official - end of the war), Fact Admiral Byrd was sent with a large military task force on a - Scientific - mission to Antarctica and left early having suffered casualty's including the loss of a destroyer.



Byrd made a statement in Argenina on his return warning of a threat from fast aircraft that could fly from pole to pole, he then disappeared from public view and was apparently hospitalized on a mental ward in 1955.
James Forrestal whom was one of his superiors FELL out of a window in 1949 after according to some wanting to tell the American public the truth about UFO's or perhaps it was about something else.


Another video, it's in Russian with Subtitles.


Here is the official public relations video of Operation High Jump, it was an innocent scientific mission and successful.


So which is the truth, A returning Hero whom disappears from view for over five years and ends up on a psychiatric ward? or something else and he was shut up and James Forrestal murdered because HE wanted to come clean as well.
