What Do We Really Know About Antarctica?

What Do We Really Know About Antarctica?

The sheer vastness of Antarctica is stunning. Despite it being the fifth largest continent, containing 70 percent of the world’s freshwater in its glacier, it remains largely unexplored – not to mention what lies beneath the ice.

The documented discovery of Antarctica is somewhat ambiguous as far as crediting one particular person, but it has been generally accepted that it occurred around 1820. However, there have been alternative theories positing that the continent may have been discovered centuries earlier by ancient civilizations – possibly influenced by extraterrestrial technology.

The evidence of an earlier discovery of Antarctica is thought to be found in the Piri Reis Map, created by the Ottomans in 1513 shortly after Columbus’ discovery of the Americas. The extent of their mapping of the continent is seemingly more advanced than early cartographers were capable of creating. Dr. John Weihaupt, an emeritus professor of Geology at the University of Colorado Denver, was a proponent of the belief that an earlier discovery was made, while the actual means of discovery, he claimed were unknown.

A Warmer Continent

According to some, the Piri Reis map appears to show subglacial topography of Antarctica during a time of warm weather that harbored life. A study by scientists from LSU and Rice University found deposits of pollen fossilized in layers of sedimentary rock, showing signs of a tundra warm enough for plant growth as recently as 12 million years ago. However, theories focusing on the Piri Reis Map would suggest a warmer Antarctic climate much more recently.

Pyramids and Odd Structures

The discovery of several four-sided pyramids has ignited another curiosity as to the mysticism surrounding Antarctica. Some claim that the pyramids could be the work of ancient or alien civilizations, while others say that they are simply nunataks, protruding peaks of mountains buried beneath the ice that have been shaped by erosion. However, the distinctly shaped sides of each face are what alternative theories see as evidence of the pyramids being man-made. An additional dome-shaped structure protruding from beneath the ice has raised further questions and perpetuated the belief of an ancient civilization buried beneath that the Ottomans may have been aware of or contacted.

Underground Tunnels and Military Bases

An image showing what appears to be several tanks and a downed aircraft have added to the prospect of government military action or secret bases on Antarctica. During WWII there was evidence, some rumored and some confirmed, of Nazi military programs that established bases on the continent, supposedly researching extraterrestrial technology. Conversely, during a naval expedition dubbed, Operation Highjump, Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd is purported to have been exposed to extraterrestrial technology.

Some interpret Byrd’s claim of seeing craft that “are able to fly from one pole to the other with incredible speed,” as a UFO sighting, whereas others interpret it as a warning of the possibility of an attack from planes subversively flying over the poles to reach their targets without detection. However, both of these interpretations seem to hint at Nazi activity on Antarctica.

Antarctica: The Process For Disclosure

Something strange is afoot in Antarctica. Recent reports have been coming to light that world leaders and politicians have been making their way to Antarctica, with no public details as to why. Corey Goode knows why they are going and what has been found under the ancient ice of the South Pole.
