Have a nose around Scott's and Shackleton's huts

View Larger Map
 Google's Street View thingy has expanded to take in the iconic antarctic huts of Scott and Shackleton. Here's what they say about it:
"With this technology, you can go inside places like Shackleton’s Hut and the other small wooden buildings that served as bases from which the explorers launched their expeditions.They were built to withstand the drastic weather conditions only for the few short years that the explorers inhabited them, but remarkably, after more than a century, the structures are still intact, along with well-preserved examples of the food, medicine, survival gear and equipment used during the expeditions. Now anyone can explore these huts and get insight into how these men lived for months at a time."
