Esperanza Base

Esperanza Base, established in 1953, is located in Hope Bay on the Trinity Peninsula of the larger Antarctic Peninsula. One of 76 Antarctic research stations maintained by 30 countries, it is among the 44 permanent bases, which remain open all year, and one of Argentina's 13 research bases. The base contains 43 buildings with just over 3,744 square metres (40,300 sq ft) of space. In 1978, Emilio Palma was born there, becoming the first person to be born on the continent of Antarctica.
