Wind Vane Hill at Cape Evans
Antarctica

Antarctica is a beautiful but dangerous place. On Wind Vane Hill stands a cross that commemorates the death of three people from Shackelton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition: Reverand Arnold Spencer-Smity died 9 March 1916; Aeneas Mackintosh and Victory Hayward vanished on 8 May 1916. Down to the north-west is Scott's hut, from his 1910 to 1912 Terra Nova expedition: the one where his party reached the South Pole, but did not return alive from. Mt Erebus is seen in the distance towards the north-east: where an Air New Zealand sightseeing flight crashed in 1979, killing all 237 passengers and 20 crew.

More About The World

Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. The dominant species on Earth is the human being, and you're one of the six billion of them! Humans have iron in their blood, and their bodies are composed of two-thirds water, just like the planet they live on. The physical composition of the Earth, its people and everything on it contains an electro-magnetic field which is not yet fully understood. Theories and legends about the origin of Earth, people and life itself abound, however they are not commonly discussed. The bulk of earth's people spend their time immersed in daily activities, leaving the big questions for later. "Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How will we get there?" Many religions and philosophies have attempted to answer these questions over the years, but so far none has given an answer that everyone on the planet can accept. In contrast to all the disagreement, the similarities among people on earth are far, far greater than any differences. Welcome again to Earth! Enjoy your stay, and try to stay calm.
