Google Street View Arrives at the South Pole

You may not remember, but 100 years ago the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen became a celebrity when he announced that he had been the first man to reach the South Pole, winning a race that competed with the British Robert Falcon Scott – who could even enjoy some success if not the detail of having frozen to death on the way back home. And now you can visit this piece of barren land in the comfort of your computer thanks to our old acquaintance Google Street View.

Google said on Tuesday it has made ​​available a special series of Antarctica pictures on the service Google Street View. Among the places that can be visited on the continent is the Amundsen-Scott station (the 1st subject to put your feet in place in the years 1911 and 1912), the cottage explorer Ernest Schackleton (who explored the region from 1914) and other historic points of the site, as the South Pole in person.

The exploitation of Google on the Antarctic continent began in September 2010 when the web giant put on the network the first images of the coast and the friendly local population (penguins, thousands of them) on Street View. As for the other images were collected through the help of the University of Minnesota and the New Zealand Antarctic Memory Fund.

Those interested, the South Pole is already available to visitors. Have a good time.
