How to claim a land that you are disputing with another country? Both Chile and Argentina thought it was a good idea force 11 couples to have children to mark territory and seize the Antarctica. Or at least, from the part closest to its boundaries.
The first of all cases was starred by the wife Argentina of a military captain when he gave birth to Emilio Marcos Palma on January 7, 1978 at the Esperanza Base. Chile did not want to be left behind and a year later sent a couple to Antarctica to build there, in the end of the world, a family.
And so it was: on November 21, 1984 he was born Juan Pablo Camacho Martino at the Frei Montalva base, thus becoming the first chilean born in Antarctica. What did Argentina do in response? Added another birth. What did chili to put tables on the scoreboard? Surprise baby, tie two.
11 babies and a continent without parents
The only battle that instead of claiming lives was incorporating them into the world was lengthening over the years, until reaching 11 babies in Antarctica. As reported infobae, no country managed to get hold of the frozen continent and all the competitors that participated survived, with a fateful final for Antarctica: it was the only one that he was left without parents.
To this day, the frozen continent still has no owner, but several countries have joined the claims. Argentina and Chile as Eternal gorillas of AntarcticaCome now how Australia, France, New Zealand, Norway and even the United Kingdom They ask for some of the coldest cake on the planet.
