Google Street View in Antarctica

Hikers in Antarctica with ship in distance (from Google Street View)

One of Google SketchUp's "sister" products, Google Street View, now features coverage on all seven continents including Antarctica.

It's pretty cool-- you can even see penguins!

Coupled with SketchUp 8's new integrated Street View texturing-- you might even be able to locate and model some structures or rock formations on the southernmost continent.

I wonder when these penguins will realize their faces haven't been blurred?

In the meantime see if you can find this boat. I wonder whose it is and how it got there?

Old boat: One of the new great mysteries on Google Street View.
