ANTARCTICA FACTS

  • The Antarctic Treaty was signed in 1959, which puts all territorial claims on hold ? so no-one actually owns Antarctica. It has been set aside as a scientific preserve, and military activity is prohibited in the region.
  • The planet's southernmost landmass also contains 80% of the world's fresh water. There are places where the ice is over 10,000 feet thick, and the ice cap itself is more than 40 million years old.
