[Part 3] So far in this marathon of episodes on the secrets of Antarctica, John and Rob talked about the strange facts about Antarctica, the Antarctic Treaty between the countries of the world, and why the frigid continent is mostly off-limits to civilians. But in this episode, they dive deeper into Antarctica’s past.
Did you know that the Nazis went down to Antarctica in the ‘30s to “research”? What other secret missions were they on? Did they succeed in building a base down there? And how about the United States, which was obviously keeping a close eye on Nazi technology and progress as they watched the world come to a war? The infamous Admiral Byrd, the highly decorated US Navy hero, led a huge-scale mission called Operation Highjump down to Antarctica—and what he encountered has been up for debate for more than 75 years. What did he really see down there, and what did the global powers learn that may have shaped our technological future? Well, join remote viewer John Vivanco and investigative researcher Rob Counts for a show that’s out of this world.
