Virtual Antarctica Introduction
On December 10, 1995, TerraQuest's maiden voyage commenced as the expedition ship Livonia set out from Ushuaia, Argentina. Over the next two weeks, online adventurers from around the world followed the guests and crew as they sailed across Drake's Passage to the continent of Antarctica. With twice daily live chats and digital dispatches linked via Inmarsat satellite systems, TerraQuest made history by becoming the first commercial travel expedition to make live uplinks to the Internet from Antarctica.

Virtual Tour: Antarctica
Regardless of where you live or which country you work for, to get to the South Pole, you almost certainly go through New Zealand and then land at McMurdo on the coast of Antarctica on your way to the center of the continent and the bottom of the Earth: the South Pole. (To just get to Antarctica, of course, you need not go through New Zealand, but to get to the South Pole, most people do go through NZ.)
