___ Satellite View of Antarctica

Antarctica bedrock
The Antarctica without the ice. Until now no sign of a lost civilisation from times after the continent detached from Gondwana supercontinent. But the continent is huge, more than 25 times the size of France, and when you use the map below you have to zoom in a lot to find any sign of human activity.

Satellite View of Antarctica using Google Earth Data

Satellite view is showing Antarctica, the most unknown place on this planet. Earth's southernmost continent is located around the South Pole, the southern point of Earth's rotation axis. Antarctica lies within the Antarctic Circle, it is bordered by the Antarctic ocean also known as the Southern Ocean. The whole continent is almost entirely covered by ice sheets, permanent layers of frozen water.

Oh, and yes, sorry, Google Maps uses a close variant of the Mercator map projection, so it hardly show areas around the poles, you only can see the "peeled" version of the Antarctica (see the small world map on the right).

So anyway, you may zoom in to explore this cool continent, or you may use Google Earth View of Antarctica. Zoom out to find the location of Antarctica's highest mountain or one of Antarctica's Ice streams, the Lambert Glacier, the world's largest glacier. It drains 8 % of the Antarctic ice sheet to the east and south of the Prince Charles Mountains. You also may find the strange Red Line near South Pole.
