DEPLOYING AUTHORITY FORCES TO ANTARCTIC REGION 17

Throughout history, tales have been told of mythical cities lost to the march of time. From the floods of Noah to Ancient Persian stories, legends are universal. Irish mythology refers to a city known as Hy Brasil; the Mayans and Aztecs talk of their origins from sunken islands. Mu, Lemuria, Avalon, El Dorado: these names hold a fictitious gleam; however, once in a blue moon, the mythical becomes reality.

On June 23rd, 2019, far south, beneath the frozen hellscape of Antarctica, and under its eternal night sky, a city has been uncovered. And a myth returns to the world.
