Antarctic Crossing


According to BBC NEWS a British Expedition has completed the fastest land crossing of the Antarctic continent in history. They used a bio-fueled vehicle along with 4x4's. Modern technology is clearly making crossing such barren land quicker and simpler but this is nonetheless a great adventure and a fine achievement, I'm truly jealous!

I personally like the fact the primary vehicle used has been run by such environmentally friendly fuel. Environmental change thanks to the pollution we cause is having such a negative impact on the amazing continent that is Antarctica and the world as a whole! The expedition also had a scientific slant as tests were carried out along the course of the 1,209 mile trip.
