Antarctica has 2 ATMs

September 13, 2011

You wouldn’t expect to be able to cash out some money from a cash machine in Antarctica, would you? Well, I have good news for you – you can.

ATM in Anctartica, McMundo Station

Interestingly enough, Antarctica has 2 ATM’s. They were installed back in 2000 at the McMurdo Station which is 840 miles from the south pole. A few of the workers were trained to perform minor repairs but a vendor is sent down once every two years to service them and deliver spare parts and/or upgrade software.
