Time for new globes, maps, and geography textbooks

Better update Google Earth as well.

National Geographic has officially recognized a fifth ocean and will redo maps to reflect the addition.

The Southern Ocean encircles Antarctica. What makes the Southern Ocean different from the others is that rather than being largely defined by the land that surrounds it, this body of water is unique because of a current that lies within. Its latitudinal boundary of 60 degrees south is roughly the same boundary as the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC), which, according to National Geographic, brings about colder and less salty water than what is found just north of the region.
