Q: Who owns Antarctica?
The Antarctic Continent or any part of it is not controlled by any nation. Instead, it is covered by the Antarctic Treaty, which provides every signatory nation with the ability to conduct non-military related research within the Antarctic Peninsula.
Argentina, the U.K. and Chile have all attempted to claim the Antarctic Peninsula in the past, but all three of these nations are currently abiding by the Antarctic Treaty.
