McMurdo Station, Antarctica on Street View
StreetViewFun discovered today that McMurdo Station in Antarctica is now on Google Maps Street View.
The Street View above is one of a number of Android Photo Spheres taken by Bryan Kiechle. Bryan however was actually with someone with a Google Street View backpack. We can even see the backpack in another of Bryan's Photo Spheres.
From the position of that Photo Sphere it looks like Google was capturing a lot of Street View imagery from the areas around McMurdo Station. However at the moment they have only added a few images inside Hanger 160 and from just outside the hanger.
This is not the first Street View imagery from Antarctica to appear on Google Maps. You can also visit the South Pole Telescope, Shackleton's hut, Scott’s hut, Cape Royds Adélie Penguin Rookery and the Ceremonial South Pole in Street View.
