Man reached the South Pole.

Is it just me, or do you find it amazing that it's only 100 years ago?

No. Some people walked through some snow. Apparently Amundsen's trip was pretty straightforward (because it was well organised).

It is amazing the advances in all technologies that make it seem so easy today.

Transportation to the starting point, food, medicine and clothing... communication and navigation all relatively easy to deal with nowadays.

I wonder if anyone will repeat the journey with yesterdays technology... I doubt it.

I find that it's two years AFTER the first cross-channel flight more amazing.

Just think of all the hoo-rah about the 10th of April next year.....
