Here's who owns Antarctica

Latest News

At the bottom of the world sits a vast, frozen desert continent where few animals venture and even fewer humans ever see:
Antarctica.
Although scientists and the occasional tourist visits this white wonderland, no one permanently lives on Antarctica, making it the only uninhabited continent on Earth.
That begs the question: Who owns Antarctica?
During the first half of the 20th century, seven countries – including Britain, Norway, and New Zealand – laid claim to certain regions of Antarctica. However, their claims are only recognized by the respective countries themselves.
Today, Antarctica is mostly a base for scientific investigations that not only probe the continent itself but also the mysteries of the cosmos.
