Main Hut, Mawson's Huts, Cape Denison, Antarctica
Antarctica

A view of the interior of the Main Hut at Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay, Antarctica.

This was the principal building used during the 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expeditio, led by Douglas Mawson.

18 Men lived and worked in the hut during 1912-13, 8 remained during 1913-1914 after the return of Mawson from his sledging voyage with Xavier Mertz and B.E.S. Ninnis - both of whom died. Mawson barely survived.

The buildings at Cape Denison are a historic site being conserved by the Mawson's Huts Foundation and Australian Antarctic Division.

    More About 世界

    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.
