Antarctica the Only Place on Earth that is BANNED for Civilians
Antarctica is the fifth-largest continent on our planet. Although completely frozen, there was a time when Antarctica was green and flourished with vegetation and diverse fauna.
About 170 million years ago, Antarctica was part of a supercontinent called Gondwana. But about 25 million years ago, Antarctica was disconnected from it and became the continent we all know.
According to official historical material, the first visit to Antarctica was by humanity in 1820, but we cannot be entirely sure.
But according to ancient maps, we can see that Antarctica was not only full of vegetation but also extremely populated. There is a very interesting documentary called The Third Reich trying to explore these issues.
Forbidden for Civilians
Let’s not forget Operation Highjump, which involved many explorations of Antarctica performed by the American for reasons unknown.
The operation took place in 1946-1947 and was organized by Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen. This operation was kept secret and more than 70,000 images were taken during the operation itself. As you can imagine, the pictures were completely classified.
In an interview, Admiral Byrd said that dangerous objects fly from pole to pole at incredible speed and that they are considered a threat to world security.
Nowadays Antarctica is still being investigated by the US government. More than 30 nations operate on the continent without the public being aware of it.

Why is Antarctica the Only Location on Our Planet That is Forbidden for Civilians?
What comes into the mind of an ordinary person when Antarctica is mentioned?
Of course, the first compounds are the cold climate and temperatures below zero, hard territory, mystery structures under the ice, penguins. But not many of us know that Antarctica is the only place on our planet that is banned for civilians.
Antarctica is the world’s southernmost continent. It contains the geographical South Pole and is located in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere, almost completely south of the Antarctic Circle, and is surrounded by the Southern Ocean. At 14,200,000 square kilometers.
With 0.00008 people per square kilometer, it is by far the densest continent. About 98% of Antarctica is covered by ice, which averages 1.9 km (6.2 km) in thickness, which extends to all but the northernmost reaches of the Antarctic Peninsula.
