Discovery Hut is located in Antarctica close to McMurdo Sound, which—as we have previously pointed out—is a really cool looking place that you really do not ever want to visit. It was built by the party of explorer Robert Falcon Scott during the Discovery Expedition of 1901 to 1904, which was the second time anyone had ever tried to explore the region, and the first time in sixty years. If the hut looks like it’s in pretty good shape for being that old, it may be because it is pretty much frozen solid. Inside this incredibly drafty little hut that sits in one of the coldest regions on the planet, you’ll find functionally useless equipment, ninety-plus year old stores of seal carcasses, meat and blubber, snow, ice and despair. The hut has served no real purpose for decades upon decades, and probably would have been completely lost to decay and neglect long ago if it didn’t sit in the middle of a deep freeze.
