American and British government science agencies have put together the finest online tour of Antarctic ever seen. Over one thousand satellite images have been digitally united into a virtual aerial tour of the southern polar region.

You can take the tour for yourself, right here. This has great WOW! value, but it's also useful for anybody following the global warming resesarch. One of the scientists involved warns that Antarctic is showing extreme reaction to climate change already. So prepare yourself for before and after pictures.
