A few questions about the Arctic and Antarctica...

Since we still have winter, let's just talk about some wintry stuff today... (although the weather outside is really springlike...) Anyhow, I have done my little research and have the following questions now:

What do you call the people who live in the icy lands of the Arctic North?

What is the name of the coldest continent? It's a huge continent lashed by freezing blizzards and gales. Temperatures there could kill you instantly as they're often as low as -89 C! This is how the British expedition led by Captain Scott ended when his team froze to death on their trek home...

What do you call the continent that was the last one to be explored? I may tell you that the first successful expedition took place in 1911 and Roald Amundsen was the leader then.

What is the name of the city that is located 200 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle? This Russian city is a port and lies on the Kola Bay, not far from Russia's borders with Norway and Finland.

Where do penguins live, in the Arctic or the Antarctic?

What are Ski-doos?

What do you call a narrow stretch of sea that separates northern Asia from North America?

Looking forward to your answers!
