A huge subglacial trench deeper than the Grand Canyon has been discovered hidden beneath the Antarctic.

Quote

The discovery was made by a team of scientists who had been charting an ancient mountain range located deep below the ice known as the Ellsworth Subglacial Highlands.

That's pretty cool. I'd love to see Antarctica without all the ice & snow.

You may be thinking of the canyon that was discovered in Greenland last year:

Eh, just scoot all the cities back a ways, we'll be fine. And we'd have a new continent to live on!

This was really interesting. And made me wonder if there is any difference between Ground Penetrating Radar, and Ice Penetrating Radar. Does the radar work the same, but just go deeper into the ice?

when that snow melts it will be just like the grand canyon; and the snow will melt one day

It will make grand canyon look like a ditch.

It's my understanding that Antartica  was once higher up on the globe and that continent shift moved it to where it is today.  I think there is an old map showing most of its geological features, but I can't recall the name of that map.

I think you may be referring to the Piri Reis map? I seem to recall that this map showed (part of) Antarctica as it would appear ice-free. Not sure if that's right through.
