Check out the moveable city in Antarctica. A new research facility in Antarctica has opened to commemorate the first British expeditions to the Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica one hundred years ago. The newest British research station, known as Halley VI, is comprised of seven separate spaces that are all connected like train cars.The structure is mounted on hydraulic legs attached to skis so it can be moved from place to place.The movable city was designed by Hugh Broughton Architects, who won the building contract in an international design competition. It contains research labs, a hydroponic salad garden, bedrooms, social areas and living quarters for the crew. They even have a guest room for when people come to visit during the summer months.The structure was specially designed to withstand the extreme weather and environmental conditions in Antarctica. Antarctica has no official cities, no currency and no official population. There are many research sites across the continent, and several countries including Argentina, Australia, The United Kingdom and others have claimed parts of land in Antarctica. The United States and Russia have requested rights to future claims Although there is no official population count, according to the World Atlas, there were around 37 thousand tourists who visited Antarctica in the 2009 to 2010 season.
