Antarctic huts are put online by Google map service

Google took several images with fish-eye lenses and then stitched them together to allow users to explore Shackleton's hut
Images of the Antarctic huts used by polar explorers Sir Ernest Shackleton and Robert Falcon Scott have been posted online as part of the latest extension to Google's Maps service.
The prefabricated wooden cabins were erected in 1908 and 1911 respectively, and were used as bases for the men's attempts to reach the south pole.
Users can navigate the 360-degree photographs to see some of the kit and supplies used by both expeditions.
