The Geographical south pole is one of the two places where the Earth’s axis of rotation meets with its surface. It is the southernmost point on the surface of the Earth and lies opposite its jollier brother, the North Pole.
The Geographical North Pole should not be confused the South Magnetic pole, which is nearby but based on the planet’s magnetic field. It took explorers centuries before they finally discovered the South Pole in the early 1900’s; before then, it was virtually hidden from the entire world.
Now a days though, the exact location of the South Pole gives people the opportunity to literally walk around the world in a matter of seconds!
