This talk will put science done in, from, and about Antarctica over the last century into a global context showing its intrinsic importance to humankind using several key case studies drawn from such diverse fields as geosciences, biological sciences and atmospheric and space sciences. The talk will also illuminate how science and diplomacy have mostly been synergistically interwoven in the effective governance and use of Antarctica, and how this has resulted in several powerful science based international legal regimes whilst also contributing to international policy making crucial for the good of humankind. The talk will conclude with a personal assessment of what will be the big science topic areas in the near future.
