When humanity’s not trying to destroy itself, its steadily redefining its boundaries. Every passing year, we create further-flung outposts in places nature never intended to us to inhabit. Here are the loneliest places mankind has made its bed in search of the unknown, the overwhelming, and the great.

The Tektite I habitat, an underwater laboratory, located in Great Lameshur Bay, Saint John, U.S. Virgin Islands in 1969

The Monte Rosa Hut, at an altitude of 2,795 metres, owned by the Swiss Alpine Club

The recently opened Halley VI Modular Research Station on the Brunt Ice Shelf, in northwest Antarctica
