At the turn of the 20th century, the intrepid explorers Sir Ernest Shackleton and Robert Falcon Scott built extensive huts in Antarctica and used them as base camps for their journeys to the South Pole. Now you can peer inside their famous cabins—thanks to Google Maps. The web company snapped 360-degree photographs of their interiors, reports BBC News. Preserved by the freezing air, thousands of artifacts remain, including supplies, kits, and a Heinz ketchup bottle. See more photos and details at PCWorld. (Read more Antarctica stories.)
