There are many high quality web sites dealing with Antarctic History and Science. Here is a brief selection of my favourites.


Walking Out of History

An excellent series of interviews and readings of the story of Ernest Shackleton's epic journey back from Antarctica in the whaler "James Caird" after the "Endurance" was crushed in the pack ice and sank. Presented by Minnesota Public Radio.

South Pole Astronomy

Australia has a number of astronomy projects at the South Pole. This site has a web cam of the UNSW observatory.

Antarctica Online

Australia has had a long and enduring connection with Antarctic science and exploration. The ANARE site has live links to the Australian bases and schedules of each season's science activities and resupply by icebreaker.
