Esperanza is one of the rare communities that inhibit the chilly winds and snowy tundras down south. Apart from the community settlements, others are scientific and military. Esperanza is known for its first resident Emilio Palma who came into this cold world, was the son of a naval officer and his wife. Palma was the first human life to reside in a tough land of snow and mist. Along with the domestic community, it still serves as a base of research for the scientists who are working in the field of research on glaciers, geology, and oceanic studies. 4,800 gallons of fuel is consumed per year to provide power to the colony.
