A favourite destination for explorers such as Captain Cook and Charles Darwin, St. Helena was also where Napoleon Bonaparte I of France was exiled until his death in 1821. 
  • Ascension Island is inhabited by the British and American military. It's also home to one of five ground antennas assisting in the operation of the Global Positioning System (GPS). NASA and the US Air Force operate a Meter-Class Autonomous Telescope (MCAT). This is part of the deep space surveillance system used to track orbital debris. 
  • The Tristan da Cunha island group is made up of Tristan, Nightingale, Gough Islands, and Inaccessible. Both Gough and Inaccessible are world heritage sites. Tristan da Cunha’s economy is based on a successful rock lobster industry and the sale of postage stamps and coins to collectors. Takes all sorts!
