Fridtjof Nansen was one of the most remarkable people of his time. An explorer, scientist, and a diplomat and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, he was also a champion ice skater and skier. In 1888, he became the first man who traversed the interior of Greenland on cross-country skis. During his expedition to the North Pole of 1893-1896, Nansen set a record after reaching the latitude of 86°14′ and gained international fame. Nansen’s life at sea was the most real version of Jules Verne’s books.

His courage and techniques of polar exploration were an inspiration and motivation for many early adventurers and explorers such as Roald Amundsen. And his innovations in clothing and equipment were of great help for the subsequent Antarctic and Arctic expeditions. In the meantime, his knowledge of zoology earned him a doctorate in neurology, a field in which Nansen established the modern theories. While working on his doctorate, he was doing research in the North Atlantic, from which he developed an interest in the field of oceanography.

In 1881, Nansen started studying zoology at the Royal Frederick University in Christiania (the former name of Oslo) where his professor, Robert Collett, gave him the idea to go on a sea voyage and study the Arctic animals. And so he did. In 1882, Nansen sailed off on aboard the sealing vessel Viking. During his journey that lasted over five months, the student collected water samples through which he proved that sea ice forms on the surface of the water, not below, as it was previously believed. He also demonstrated how the Gulf Stream flows beneath a cold layer of surface water.

Who was the first female POC to reach the North Pole on skis/with dog sled?

Asking because I have an idea for a Hollywood film.

Since Admiral Robert E. Peary purportedly completed the first expedition to the North Pole in 1909 (subsequent analysis has cast doubt on whether he made it), only 47 of the 247 treks completed to 90 degrees north have been unsupported and unassisted.

Isn't it interesting that voyages to the NORTH POLE 100 YEARS AGO are scrutinized whether the explorer actually accomplished what they said they did, and yet, to do the same regarding manned voyages TO THE MOON 50 YEARS AGO is taboo to scrutinize?

"None of Amundsen's, Columbus and Marco Polo's discoveries would have happened had they not relied on the efforts, failures and successes of previous explorers. To guarantee progress, it's important to learn from and celebrate true achievement."

Indeed. No wonder the utter stagnation in space exploration, the last 50 years.

Barbara Hillary, the first African-American to set foot on the North Pole AND the South Pole. Imagine the bravery and guts it took to book that plane ticket.

In 1988 Ann Bancroft was able to do what only 247 men had done before her, traverse all the way from Ellesmere Island to the North Pole. (she was actually about the 65th, if you thought I was trying to diminish her accomplishment you should be ashamed of yourself)

It's a 'Brave New World', ain't it. So brave.
