[/b] [b]- Antarctica was imagined by the ancient Greeks, but not even seen until 1820.[/b] (Imagined, MY ASS.) http://www.coolantarctica.com/Antarctica%20fact%20file/fascinating_facts_about_antar.htm [b]- Antarctica is the best place in the world to find meteorites. Dark meteorites show up against the white expanse of ice and snow and don't get covered by vegetation. In some places, the way the ice flows concentrates meteorites there. The ice makes them gather in one place.[/b] (No, there are a lot of meteorites there because it was hit by a huge meteor in the first place.) [b]-The cold and dry conditions in the "Dry Valleys" region of Antarctica are so close to those on Mars that NASA did testing there for the Viking mission. It has not rained in the dry valleys for at least 2 million years.[/b] (Look again to the huge Mars impact. http://wapi.isu.edu/Geo_Pgt/Mod09_Mars/mars.htm [i]"The southern and northern hemispheres of Mars are so different that they are divided into separate geologic provinces. The southern hemisphere has many large, multi-ring craters and basins, and volcanic intercrater terrain, very similar to Mercury and the Earth’s Moon. These craters were probably formed by intense bombardment early in the planet’s history."[/i]) [/quote] [quote:Mister Obvious:MV8xMzY3OTU2XzIyNTU4OTExXzg4RjI3NjJF] http://www.physics.wsu.edu/academics/astro138/LectureNotes/mars.html [i]"The northern and southern hemispheres of Mars are notably different, as is evident from the map of the surface of Mars constructed from observations made with the Mars Global Surveyor"[/i] http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2009/03/mars-discovery.html [i]"The impact would have to be big enough to blast the crust off half of the planet, but not so big that it melts everything.

That Antarctica has multiple volcanic domes,
and the temperature and winds this past December have broken all previous records.
Things look as if they are heating up. It is NOT global warming that is melting the ice sheets...it is volcanic activity.
The Great Flood?
Two British researchers contend that a volcano violently erupted around 2,000 years ago and blew a large hole through the ice sheet in West Antarctic at around the year
207 B.C., and scientists confirm it was the largest volcanic eruption in Antarctica over the last 10,000 years

Some other scientific journals point to 325 BC.

South Pole’s Record Breaking Week…(Corrected!)
Posted on December 31, 2011 by mattl
Here’s more on South Pole Stations record breaking week of weather (Courtesy of South Pole Meteorology Office):
December 24th: The peak wind speed of 29 kts/33 mph broke the previous record of 28 kts/32 mph set in 1996.
December 24th: The temperature of -13.3°C/8.1°F broke the previous maximum temperature record of -15.7°C/3.7°F set in 1984.
December 25th: The temperature of -12.3°C/9.9°F broke the previous maximum temperature record of -17.2°C/1.0°F set in 1978.
December 25th: The temperature of -12.3°C/9.9°F broke the record for the all-time maximum temperature at South Pole. The previous record of -13.6°C/7.5°F was set on December 27, 1978.
December 30th: The peak wind speed of 25 kts/29 mph broke the previous record of 21 kts/24 mph set in 1989.

Its warming up and getting windier.
And breaking all previous records.
