Abstract
We discuss the site conditions for astronomy at the South Pole and over the Antarctic plateau. We find that these conditions are the most favorable on Earth for sensitive observations at thermal IR and sub-millimeter wavelengths. We further discuss plans to develop IR facilities to exploit this potential.
