Myth or reality? Antarctica Mysteries
The United States decided on a huge expedition to Antarctica while the war was still going on. This expedition is known as Operation Highjump. Expeditions are not a new thing, but why then?
Maybe more surprising is the number of U.S. personnel and machinery on this expedition. Over 4,000 U.S. personnel led by Adm. Richard Byrd on dozens of aircraft and ships went on this expedition. No other U.S. expedition to Antarctica had been so massive. Even if there is a hurry to dominate this place, is there something in particular to dominate?
