Question

Scott Wilson asked:

I listen to the Naked Astronomy podcast all the time, and have a question no one has yet addressed that I have heard.

Since Antarctica is so dry, a desert actually, if cold, and is suppose to be with the highest average elevation, why do we not put telescopes on one or more of it's mountains?
