Summer, on the other hand, is a comparative hive of activity. Roughly four dozen people converge here to conduct on-site research or launch field expeditions further out onto the icy expanse of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Bernardo O’Higgins helped the country gain independence from Spain in the early 19th century. Do you like the sunrise over Antarctica?
