Fast facts & polar trivia

  • Antarctica is earth’s southernmost continent, but is not a country
  • It is mostly uninhabitable, no indigenous inhabitants, no economy, and no agriculture
  • The only people who live there (part-time) are researchers — depending on the weather, there are between 1,000 and 6,000 of them at any given time (including those onboard ships)
  • Antarctica is about 8.82 million square miles in size
  • 98% percent of the continent is covered with a thick ice sheet, and just 2% of the area is rock
  • It is the coldest, windiest, and driest continent on Earth, which is why it’s called a polar desert
  • East Antarctica is a little cooler than West Antarctica (due to higher elevation)
  • The area’s highest point is Vinson Massif, which is 4,892 meters high (16,049 feet)
  • The name “Antarctica” comes from two Greek words meaning “opposite to the Arctic” or “opposite the north”
