Antarctica recently became a lot more accessible to us all right on Google Street View. These precious panoramic sights are going up on Google’s World Wonders Project site, where you will also find some other amazing locations in the world. Well, you can’t quite do a walkthrough in the ‘hood like you can with the usual Street View, but you can get stunning 360° views of historic Antarctic sights such as the South Pole Telescope, Shackleton’s hut (yes, still standing its ground and intact after more than a century!), Scott’s hut, Cape Royds Adélie Penguin Rookery and the Ceremonial South Pole. We were watching out for penguins to see if they got their faces blurred. No such luck. Well, maybe next time.
