How Antarctic bases went from wooden huts to sci-fi chic

Recommended Posts

How do you build in the most isolated place on Earth? For decades Antarctica - the only continent with no indigenous population - hosted only the simplest huts as human shelters. But, as Matthew Teller finds out, architecture in the coldest, driest, windiest reaches of our planet is getting snazzier.

It's an eye-popping, futuristic design - a dark, sleek building, low and long, that is destined to be a temporary waterfront home for up to 65 people at a time.

Well they found something down there under the ice...buildings? bodies? maybe even a city?

This is much the same as the notion that humans are descendents of an ancient Martian civilization. Imagine the religious furor...

But like so many others, you've got to wonder what's really going on down there. Is that where the Martians set up shop? Or Atlantis?
