Antarctica. True-colour satellite image of the southern polar continent of Antarctica. The South Pole is at centre. Snow and ice are white, water is blue and vegetation is green. The tip of South America is seen at top left. Antarctica is encased in perpetual snow and ice, and is the coldest place on Earth. The Antarctic Peninsula (upper left) and the peaks of the Transantarctic Mountains range (lower centre) are seen. Ice shelves extend out from the shores of Antarctica, such as the massive Ross Ice Shelf (lower centre).
