One man's solo trek to the South Pole

173 ratings | 15208 views
Henry Worsley's lifetime fascination with Antarctic explorers such as Ernest Shackleton, Roald Amundsen and Robert Scott led him to retrace their expeditions in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. In 2015 Worsley set off yet again to emulate his hero, Shackleton, by embarking on the first solo crossing of the continent. Anthony Mason talks with David Gran, author of the new book "The White Darkness," and with Worsley's wife, Joanna, about her husband's fateful trip.

She came out of the "black" fog? Last time I checked, fog was "white". Anyway. Why do people like this guy have children?

Wait a minute you don't load up food on a sled and walk 3,500 miles? Didn't you see those ski's man, people wrote on them, that is way too hard to fake.

The so-called “South Pole” is simply an arbitrary point along the Antarctic ice marked with a red and white barbershop pole topped with a metal ball-Earth. This ceremonial South Pole is admittedly and provably NOT the actual South Pole. The actual South Pole could be demonstrably confirmed with the aid of a compass showing North to be 360 degrees around the observer. Since this feat has never been achieved, the model remains pure theory. The establishment’s excuse that the geomagnetic poles supposedly constantly move around making verification of their claims impossible. The Globe: The foundation for evolution, the big bang, atheism, alien seeding, paganism, the occult, the new world order and satanic world control. The Flat Earth: Described in the bible, experimentally verified but hidden, scientifically proven, points to god alone as the creator and blows Satan's deception wide open. God bless ❤ 🙏

Fascinating. What is it in people that makes them want to do things like this? I feel sorry for his wife. She obviously misses him.

What would cause a bacterial infection in the stomach?? Bad meat, water/dirty ice?? Is there no medicine to treat it? Could you contaminate yourself by having dirty hands?? Any one know??
Cubs0671 (1 month ago)
Diane Fitzpatrick It's not actually an infection of the stomach. It's an infection of the peritoneum, the lining of your entire abdomen. The source of his infection likely would have come from some part of his bowel. Whether that was a gastric ulcer that perforated, diverticulitis, appendicitis or something similar, it was likely the bacteria that caused his sepsis were from his intestinal tract.

There is a man in Utah that biked the Antarctic. He owned a bike shop and did it without support. He lives in Eagle Mountain.

THIS IS FAKE!!!! EARTH IS FLAT AND STATIONARY!!!
Mr. Jackson (3 days ago)
Wait a minute but if the earth is flat how did they fake those ski's, and the snow? Clearly Antarctica is real didn't you see the map? People go walk 3,500 miles in the snow all the time it makes perfect sense

Earth is a plane, with peaks and valleys. This sun worshiping channel, with 1 eye sun images in the back wake up sheeple. This is nkthing more than a disinfo piece. He would never be able to this, and had a film crew there. Never went past the 90th parallel.

I like toroidals!

The earth has several triangle shaped sides with giant question marks on them that can only be seen from space using a special decoder module.

I would rather be ashes than dust. I would rather that my spark should burn out in brilliant blaze than it should be stifled in dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time. —- Jack London
