Antarctica Crossing Trailer (2012)
To commemorate Amundsen, Scott and their men, on November 2nd 2011, two men will set out to open a new route linking the east and west coast of Antarctica, via the South Pole over an estimated 85 to 90 days, without assistance.
The Antarctica Legacy crossing will cover close to 4000 kilometers on skis and kites, passing through the Pole of Inaccessibility—the farthest point inland from any coast—and the South Pole, to end at Hercules Inlet, at the edge of the Ronne ice shelf. The men will link two points never traveled before, setting tracks in places where no man has ever been.
On the science side, we will be making photographic observations of the ice surface for the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), to help determine ice accumulation in specific areas.
