Some of the most remote locations on earth in the Arctic. 


These are scenes from my latest video that I just put up. You can watch it here:


This video has footage and the story of an Arctic expedition I was on with Astronaut Chris Hadfield. We ride straight INTO ice, walk through a beach full of skeletons, enter one of the most remote places on Earth, eat the oldest organisms on Earth! (all for real!)


This was a bucket list adventure. Hope you enjoy!

Sir John Franklin led an ill-fated 1845 expedition of two British crews that vanished while seeking a passage through the ice over the top of the world. For decades, people have searched for some trace of Franklin or his ships, the Erebus and the Terror

Canadian researchers located one of the lost ships in 2014, almost completely intact under the ice – Paul Watson writes about the search in his new book Ice Ghosts.

Check out his conversation with Steve Inskeep here.

The Moon, Planets and, Oh My! by Mark Ledingham
Via Flickr:
The reflections of the setting moon (left) and the planets, Mars, Venus and Uranus, were easily seen with the naked eye on 1 March. Viewed closely, the outline of the quarter moon may be discovered in this image. The northern lights highlighted the events of the evening. Location: The Norwegian Sea, at Ersfjordbotn, Arctic Norway.
