Explore Antarctica in Google Maps Street View

Earlier today Google released some fantastic new Google Street View imagery of Antarctica. This imagery has also been included in Google's World Wonders Project too. Obviously the imagery it isn't actually "street view" rather it is ground-level 3D imagery of notable landmarks in Antarctica. You can view places like Shackelton's hut and the ceremonial south pole.
