SAFRICA-SCIENCE-ANTARCTICA-EXPEDITION

Explorers Sir Ranulph Fiennes (L) and Anton Bowring talk to journalists on January 6, 2013 in Cape Town. Fiennes is leading a team of explorers willing to succeed in the last great polar challenge: crossing Antarctica in winter. Their attempt aims at raising 10 million US dollars for Seeing is Believing, an organization tackling avoidable blindness. The challenge will take six months - mostly in complete darkness - for more than 2,000 miles. In total, the team will spend an estimated 273 days on the ice, and once under way, travel at an average of 35km per day.
