    Its from The Express, 


    My biggest shock upon reading the explanation there is that they didn't attribute it to ancient aliens.

    Hello!

    Here Frank said:

    In aviation, commercial flights are prohibited from flying over Antarctica

    Why is that? Is it for safety reasons?

    I can't see any difference between dying in bitter-cold waters of southern seas (when avoiding to enter Antarctica's latitudes) and freezing to death in the midst of Antarctica itself.

    Or is it for ecological reasons - not to spoil Antactica with airplanes' debris? Or simply the fuel-savings are not big enough to validate all the risks?

    Please comment.

    Warm regards,

    Tony
