Our planetary body has a magnetosphere which protects us from solar radiation.  Solar particles from Coronal Mass Ejections light up the skies in the Aurora (Australis & Borealis) because of this magnetosphere that runs through the North and South poles. This same magnetic toroidian field, is present in all life forms, from nuclei and cells, to humans, planets, stars, and galaxies.
Antartica from space, by NASA

1. The first confirmed sighting of the continent was in 1820.

2. Explorers first reached the South Pole in 1911.

3. Because Antarctica lies in the southern hemisphere, seasons there are the opposite of seasons in the north — summer runs from October to February and winter covers the remainder of the year.

4. Antarctica is the coldest continent; temperatures in the winter can drop below –73°C (-100°F).

5. The lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth was at Russia’s Vostok Station in Antarctica: -89.2°C (-128.6°F) on 21st July, 1983.

6. Antarctica is the driest continent; it is almost entirely desert. Very little snow or rain falls on the continent, but because it is so cold, the small amount of precipitation that doe fall does not melt.

7. The ice can be more than 4 km thick in some places. This ice flows
off the continent and creates floating ice shelves over the ocean; these shelves break up and create icebergs. If Antarctica’s ice sheets melted, the world’s oceans would rise by 60-65 meters.

8. About 70% of Earth’s fresh water is in the Antarctic ice cap

Homo Sapiens Sapiens evolved on Terra ~Gaia~ , or Mother Earth from the fertile crescent of what was formally known as Pangea. Like all species on the tree, we are but one species of many sentient species throughout the annals of creation.
Tests on human remains hidden in a Spanish cave for 400,000 years have set a new record for the oldest human DNA sequence ever decoded—and may challenge the scientific thinking about our human origins.
