  • Does that mean there are 11 countries with bases in Antartica ?

  • I wonder if they also have an actual “local” time zone that is the same for all of Antarctica so it’s easier for bases to work together, and the “official” time zones are just to emphasis which country controls a certain area.

    I thought they had only two time zones night and day.

      No actually winter and summer

    It would be a nightmare going for a walk. You’d have to keep adjusting your watch, and that would involve taking your gloves off. brrrrr
