    2 Friday, January 28, 2022 Drake Passage, Antarctica
    View of Drake Passage, Antarctica

    Drake Passage is the body of water between the southern tip of South America at Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. Named after the sixteenth century English explorer Sir Francis Drake, although he never actually sailed the passage, it connects the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and is the shortest crossing from Antarctica to the rest of the world’s land, about 860 km. Conditions can change instantly in the Drake Passage, owing to strong winds, large waves, strong currents, and icebergs: hence notorious as ‘sailors’ graveyard.’ Until the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914 large ships had to sail this passage. Yet today most commercial shipping uses the open-ocean Drake Passage. Read more about Drake Passage, Antarctica

    4 Sunday, January 30, 2022 South Shetland Islands, Antarctica

    The South Shetland Islands is a group of 11 major and several minor islands located 960 km south of the tip of South America and about 120 km north of the Antarctic Peninsula. While discovered towards the beginning of the seventeenth century, either by Dutch or Spanish explorers, it is currently not administered by any one nation. There are 18 research stations on the islands (10 year-round, 8 summer only). With research a shared duty of nations, it is not surprising that the ‘Unofficial Capital of Antarctica’ is regarded as being situated on King George Island, the largest of the group.

    Hope Bay is located on Trinity Peninsula, the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, 350 km north of the Antarctic Circle.This is the closest part of Antarctica to the South American mainland.
