The Antarctic continent is larger than the USA and Europe combined. It is the only continent without a native human population. The Antarctic Treaty, ratified by 46 nations, designates the entire continent as an international scientific preserve. The Treaty protects freedom of scientific investigation and bans military activity.  “Operation Deep Freeze” was the U.S. Antarctic Research Program, which began in 1955 in partnership between the Navy and the National Science foundation. The Navy built the research stations and provided ongoing support, transportation, health care, and logistics for university based civilian scientists.
