The Antarctica and the Arctic

Interesting facts I found this morning about the Antarctica and the Arctic after watching news about icy breakup in the Antarctica.
 
Antarctica is home to the South Pole, the North Pole is found in the Arctic.
Antarctica is a continent surrounded by ocean. The Arctic is an ocean surrounded by continents.
Antarctica was the last continent to be discovered in the early 1800s.
Seven nations: Argentna, Australia, Chile, France, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom now claim territory in Antarctica.
Some countries (including The U.S.) have a policy of not recognizing any claims in Antarctica, and others reserve the right to make a claim of their own.
 
What the heck of having a policy of not recognizing any claims!
