I am more than surprised that this story was published. Polynesians were excellent ocean navigators, but to suggest that these Polynesians, who only discovered the Cook Islands in the 11th century and New Zealand in the 13th century had been to Antarctica in the 7th century belongs in the land of fairytales. The Polynesians had no written language and apparently it is now acceptable for myth and oral tradition to become accepted in media that these things happened. Please stick to science.
