ANTARCTICA FACTS

  • The Antarctic is 48 times the size of the UK (14.4 million sq km). It is the world's only uninhabited continent.
  • The Antarctic is the coldest place in the world (lowest recorded temperature is -89.9 C). It is also the windiest place in the world (fastest recorded wind speed of 300km/h). And it is technically a desert: it has less than 5cm of precipitation in a year.
