What types of new species of life have you found while exploring the waters off of Antarctica?
Dear Team, I am greatly enjoying your pictures and reports fron Punta Arenas and Antartica. I am an MD, UAB Med Center graduate '61, and went to Chile in '58 on a nutrition study with the US Government under the ICNND(International Committee of Nutrition for National Defence).
I also touched the Toe of the Indigenous Indian at Punta Arenas and drank Pisco Sours playing "Yo Duddo" after the nutition survey of the locals. We traveled up to Northern Chile thru the Atacam Desert to the city of Arica and reported of the nutrition of the country.
Your adventures bring back all of the memories of my trip.
I am now practicing medicine in B'ham at Brookwood Hospital.
Good luck and I admire your work! JIM Blanton, MD

Is Antartica cold?
I was surfing YouTube one day when I say a video. The video featured a penguin. The penguin lived with a Japanese family. The penguin would walk ALL the way to the market every day, to buy the family fish. He wore a cute little backpack. Is this a strange occurance, or are penguins really that intelligent? If so, where can I get one? The local pet store only sells cats and dogs, as well as a pig every now and then. Thank you, and good luck with your researching!

Hello. My name is Jacob, and I am interested in developing on Antarctica.
What type of treaties are signed between countries as far as whom has rights to build on Antarctica? Could I (meaning someone in general) simply fund a construction crew to go to Antarctica and melt out a section to the surface and start building a town / city? What are the policies on that, and who enforces them?
