Antarctica and New Schwabenland (in red)

Here I started to have some problems, and lack of information. This is what I have found on expeditions to Antarctica, before, during and after WWII: Videos: It was difficult to find information about the 3 nuclear tests near Antarctica, but here it is: At least the nations arrived to some conclusions after so many nuclear tests, and they signed the Antarctic Treaty System, and to be sure they wanted to put there 4 Nuclear Detection Systems.

Thank you.

Hi, :cool:

Maybe some of you already seen this, but this is a very interesting thread about Germans WWII saucers , with a lot of information, photos and videos.

Does anyone have any information, or references, about the possible Germans saucers bases in Antarctica and the 1958 nuclear bombing that was done there?


Added by Pegasus:
For those who can read German here are two fantastic sites with pictures of all sorts of projects...

So it Begins:

After the war, 118 German rocket scientists worked together at Fort Bliss, Texas. 
"Intelligence and government officials faced a delicate moral quandary in 1945—whether it was worth it to give American homes to men who had invented weapons to kill American soldiers, men who in some cases subscribed to beliefs that hundreds of thousands Americans had died to eradicate. In the end they decided it was, if these men could help the United States defeat the Soviets." - Christine Gibson is a former editor at American Heritage magazine.

To follow the chronology of events from 1945 to the present activities in Antarctica see these two pages;

To understand what is going on in Antarctica the best way is to explore the "back doors" If there are any secret projects going on, it is unlikely we will get direct evidence, but there are many indirect sources that when assembled into a bigger puzzle, begin to paint a picture. The above pages are an ongoing collection putting the pieces of the puzzle into ti,eline perspective. It is a work in progress but many details have already imerged. Below are soem of the key links in seeking pieces of the puzzle.

Pegasus Field, McMurdo Staion, Antarctica
This article is from a casual visitor to the station. Key points mentioned are
 - ATS personel get R&R perks; "The regular McMurdo staff used to get this, but not any more. However, the ATS guys still do." - Seth White
 - "As an aside, the Navy crews left a LOT of crap around in this area" - Seth White
 - Since 1956: "The Navy simply bulldozed their trash into this bay. They would also send out old dozers and equipment on ice floes and dynamite them, leaving the wreckage to sink to the bottom of McMurdo Sound." - Seth White
 - Re: Navy Pollution: "But there are still a lot of things left over from the old days that nobody really wants to deal with, and are more or less ignored." - Seth White

Editors Note: This report is from a "tourist" point of view, yet reveals many interesting facts. Pegasus Field is used to land heavy transports on the ice, and also supplies the Russian Vostok Station. Vostok Station was also mentioned in the 1946 Antarctic activities. Seems the Russians are still as active there as well. 

Pegasus Field, Antarctica: Scouring Old Wounds 2000 - 2001

This is a modern report of cleanup operations from the military activities in Antarctica, specifically around McMurdo Station, Key points are;
 - "In 1994, soil samples from around the station pinpointed six hot spots with at least 10,000 parts per million of total petroleum hydrocarbons, 100 times the maximum allowed in the United States." - Kristan Hutchison 
 - "The garbage and spilled fuel had been accumulating since the station was established in 1956" - Bill Gilmore environmental manager
 - "Already the environmental department has removed 2,000 tons of fuel contaminated soil and 697 drums of fuel, ice and soil from McMurdo in the past two seasons." - Kristan Hutchison

Editors Note: The above major cleanup effort says two things of importance. The first is that major activity has been going on here since 1956; Second, judging by the amount of waste produced daily today there is still ongoing major activity. The sheer quantity of waste, contaminated soil, fuel spills and metal dynamited to the ocean floor is proof of something major taking place. Both these articles mention the Navy as the main players in the region since 1956

Runway Project Clears the Way for Improved Antarctic Airlift
Office of Legislative & Public Affairs

 - "The newly developed compaction process protects the runway from sun damage while having the structural strength necessary to withstand the stresses imposed by the landing of large aircraft such as the C-5 Galaxy, one of the world's largest aircraft; the C-17 Globemaster, the newest air force cargo plane; and the older C-141s." - Peter West

C-17 Globemaster III -Courtesy USAF
Editors Note: Why do they need to bring in so many giant transport planes? At the very least this is indication of major operations in the area. The other really interesting factor is that the company that runs the cargo operations is Raytheon, a major defense contractor

Raytheon Polar Services Company
 - "Raytheon Polar Services exists specifically to meet the needs of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Polar Programs. The main function of RPSC is to provide support to the United States Antarctic Program, which is dedicated to sustaining the Antarctic environment and funding scientists who conduct research in Antarctica." - Mission Statement

Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station;

 - "The original South Pole station, now referred to as "Old Pole", was constructed by an 18-man United States Navy crew during 1956–1957. The crew landed on site in October 1956 and was the first group to winter-over at the South Pole, during 1957. Since the winter conditions at the South Pole had never been measured, the station was built partially underground in order to protect it from the worst imaginable weather."

U.S. Admits "Salvage Operation" Underway in Antarctica

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (AMP) — The United States for the first time admitted it is engaged in a "salvage operation" in Antarctica and says that a recently discovered "anomaly" two miles beneath the ice is a NASA Mars module lost during an ill-fated training mission 31 years ago.

"Our salvage crew has found a piece of American spaceflight history at the bottom of an eleven-thousand-foot-deep ice gorge in East Antarctica," Defense Department spokesman Glenn Flood said. "But an icy gale crushed the robotic rover used to identify and photograph the spacecraft, putting recovery efforts on hold until the polar storm passes." That could be weeks, he added.

Observers in the international community were suspicious of the announcement, calling the "recovery effort " a cover story for something more sinister. "Why all the secrecy?" asked one French diplomat at the United Nations. "When the Liberty Bell 7 space capsule was discovered on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, much hoopla was made. Now it sits in the Kansas Cosmosphere. Where is the publicity for this discovery?"

Some intelligence analysts speculate that the lost Mars module was powered by a compact nuclear reactor plant. That would be in direct violation of the international Antarctic Treaty. "The irony," said one space observer, "is that in attempting to cover its past infringements, the U.S. does even greater violation to the treaty."

To this day NASA has refused to release details on the module, Red Genie, or the names of its four occupants. But some old-timers from the Apollo space program recall Red Genie disappeared halfway through a 40-day training mission meant to simulate conditions on Mars after the ice beneath it mysteriously collapsed, revealing an ancient, scythe-like gorge almost one mile long and two miles deep.

When asked why a military rather than a civilian salvage crew was used, Flood said that NASA reserved the right to inspect the capsule for signs of what went wrong in 1969. Two cameras and a tape recorder were on board that could shed light on what happened in one of the more intriguing mysteries of American space flight.

"Few Americans are aware that NASA had plans to put the first man on Mars in 1982," said former Apollo systems technician Peter Nordquist, 78. "And we could have done it back then cheap. Just imagine. Today a manned flight is so cost-prohibitive that nobody will seriously talk about it. They want to stick with robots like the Sojourner."

The Mars shuttle, as originally formulated by rocket pioneer Wernher von Braun in 1953 and later revised by NASA planners in the late 1960s, was scheduled to depart the American space station Freedom on November 12, 1981, reach the red planet on August 9, 1982, and return to Earth one year later. But by 1969 the war in Vietnam had sapped the federal budget, and the moon landing had temporarily satiated Americans' appetite for space exploration. With congressional opposition to the mission mounting, President Nixon rejected the Mars mission and space station program. Only the space shuttle got the green light.

Critics in hindsight say Nixon's catastrophic decision set back the Mars program for decades, left the space shuttle all dressed up with no place to go and cast a rudderless NASA adrift in the political backwaters of Washington without a clear vision.
