The Next Antarctic Expedition

Team ITACE, the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Centenary Expedition, has 228 days until its polar expedition. They will 'attempt the crossing in the proposed footsteps of Shackleton, from the Weddell Sea to the Ross Sea via the South Pole. They will be carrying out the "unfinished business" of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew.'

Strange that this thought from Shackleton was posted just as Ben Saunders is preparing for his talk to TED in Vancouver.
