Detailed Product Description
Chile, Geopolitical Institute of Chile, 1986. 135 pp, color photos, maps. In Spanish. Used paperback. Near Fine to Fine.

General Javier Lopetegui Torres spent more than 35 years immersed in Antarctic matters. Don Javier was a quiet and modest man. One might never suspect that he was responsible for furthering Chilean science deep in Antarctica and in many ways for the very existence of Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions.

In the early 1980’s, Lopetegui, a former pilot and Antarctic specialist, was Advisor on Antarctic Policy to the Commander in Chief of the Chilean Air Force (Fuerza Aιrea de Chile, FACh). He recognized the potential for economic and strategic gains through the development of Chilean facilities in Southern Chile and in Antarctica – a position summed up in his 1986 book Antartica – Un Desafio Perentorio (Antarctica – An Urgent Challenge). Lopetegui was instrumental in establishing the first community and hotel in Antarctica – Villa Las Estrellas – at King George Island; as well as furthering tourism to the interior of the continent.
