Antarctica is the southern-most continent and is also the fifth largest continent. It is also said to be the coldest, driest and windiest one of all the continents. It is also the last area to be discovered which was only in 1820 by a Russian expedition headed by Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev aboard the Vostok and Mirny.
For the most part of the 19th century, it has been largely forgotten by most people due to its uninhabitable environment and inaccessibility. To this day, it is said that only around 1,000 to 5,000 people reside on the continent and mostly in research stations across the continent.
