The island and Weather Station on it represent one of the most remote places on the planet with constant human presence. The station has been operating since 1956, and it is important for winter forecasting, since cold fronts approach South Africa from that side. If you visit it, you won't see any locals, as the island is uninhabited other than the station crew, which arrives by boat once year.
