Antarctica is the world’s fifth-largest continent. Even though Antarctica is currently fully frozen, there was a period when it was lush with plants and rich wildlife.
Antarctica was formerly part of a supercontinent known as Gondwana, which existed around 170 million years ago. However, some 25 million years ago, Antarctica broke free and evolved into the continent we know today.
The first human visit to Antarctica, according to official history documents, took place in 1820, although we can’t be certain.
However, we can tell from old maps that Antarctica was not just lush with vegetation, but also densely inhabited. Third Reich is a really intriguing documentary that attempts to analyze these issues.
Let’s not forget about Operation Highjump, which involved many American expeditions to Antarctica for unclear reasons.
Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen organized the operation, which took place between 1946 and 1947. This operation was kept under wraps, and over 70.000 photos were captured throughout the course of it. As you can expect, the images were categorized thoroughly.
Admiral Byrd stated in an interview that deadly items are traveling from Pole to Pole at extraordinary speeds, posing a threat to global security.
Antarctica is still being examined by the US government today. Without the public’s knowledge, more than 30 countries operate on the continent.
