Antartica is the Earth’s southernmost continent. It also happens to be coldest one, containing approximately 90 percent of the world’s ice. The extreme conditions in Antartica make it the only continent in the entire world without indigenous human inhabitants. The only living organisms that thrive in this huge wasteland are penguins, seals, and certain insects and parasites.
But what if the bareness of the region make it the perfect place for an intelligent life form to take shelter? These bizarre satellite images of a mysterious staircase in Antarctica has got the Internet talking about this possibility.
Could this be proof of extraterrestrial life? Or is it a gateway to an ancient city? Learn more about this strange conspiracy below.
Aliens? Atlantis? Nazis? Satellite Images of Mysterious Staircase in Antarctica Prompt Bizarre Theories
Antartica, being the fifth-largest continent, is twice the size of Australia. Over the years, scientists from around the world have made numerous discoveries here, including an active volcano that rises 2,300 feet from the sea floor.
Another interesting discovery made in Antartica was a meteorite that contained possible evidence of ancient life on Mars. The discovery was made in 1996 when scientists from NASA and Stanford University recovered a potato-size meteorite that was believed to have landed in Antartica approximately 13,000 years ago.

However, the latest “discovery” made in Antarctica hasn’t been backed up scientists. An alleged Google Earth image from the Antarctic has pushed conspiracy theorists to come up with the most bizarre theories out there.
The photo, which is a grainy shot of what seems to be a “staircase,” is said to be a landing site for UFOs. The image was posted by an anonymous member of the Web forum Godlike Productions, who wrote in the description:
“This morning, in the work van, we were talking about conspiracies, and one of them were about so many big names going to Antarctica out of the blue,” the caption read. “I was bored so I pulled out Google Earth for a while, just exploring, when I came across something that looked like a giant staircase.”
Many have come forward with their own conclusions. One user noted that the said staircase in Antarctica it could be remnants of the lost city of Atlantis, while a majority suggested that it could be a landing site for extraterrestrial creatures or even a Nazi base. As of this writing, there has been no official explanation as to what this structure may be.
