Clif High & The mysteries of antarctica
We welcome the webbot guru to explore the obscurity that is Antarctica. In this 3-part show we deal with everything – some issues touched in Part 1: Why did Clif take interest in this mystery? What say web-bot about it?
What happened there in the late 90’s? Why was it promoted for tourism after that? What’s the large magnetic anomaly under the ice? Why’s all satellite images censored & manipulated? What did Russians find in Lake Vostok? Are there really hot zones? Was there a nuclear meltdown in the 70s? Where was Atlantis? Was Admiral Byrd right? What say the Ancients? What happens if the ice melts? And learn how Earth grows…
Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd was an American naval officer, aviator, and polar explorer who is best known for his explorations of Antarctica using airplanes and other modern technical resources. After graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1912, Byrd was commissioned an ensign in the U.S. Navy. He learned flying at the U.S. Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Florida, and served in the navy with distinction until the end of World War I.
Byrd’s first Antarctic expedition took place in 1928-1930, during which he established a base camp called “Little America” on the Ross Ice Shelf. He also made the first flight over the South Pole on November 29, 1929, in a Ford Trimotor airplane named the Floyd Bennett. Byrd’s second Antarctic expedition, which took place in 1933-1935, was called Operation Highjump. It was one of the largest Antarctic expeditions ever undertaken and involved 13 ships, 23 aircraft, and more than 4,000 personnel. During this expedition, Byrd discovered the largest dormant volcano in Antarctica, Mount Sidley.
Byrd was also a prolific writer and authored several books about his experiences in Antarctica. His most famous book, “Alone,” chronicles his experiences during his first Antarctic expedition and his desperate bid to survive the harsh Antarctic landscape. His other books include “Little America,” “Discovery,” and “Skyward.” Byrd’s writings provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of Antarctic exploration and the challenges faced by those who dared to venture into this harsh and unforgiving environment.
