Orcadas Base

We just learned about the explorer Ernest Shackleton.

Another part of Antarctica is the Orcada Base research station.

In the year 1903, there were British explorers to Antarctica who came to set up a building where they could stay and study the life and nature of Antarctica.

After they left to go back home to Scotland, they worked with the people of Argentina to agree to keep the building around for other people to come and do experiments.

The Orcada Base has been around now for over 100 years as a scientific research station in Antarctica where people have come through the years to study the life of Antarctica.
