On June 8, 1924, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine left their tent high up on the slopes of Mount Everest and climbed into history. They were seen at 12:50 pm just 800 feet from the summit and "going strong for the top". Within minutes, Mallory and Irvine had disappeared in a snowstorm and were never seen alive again.

Besides ancient history l also love adventure and exploration. No story exemplifies adventure and exploration more than the story of George Mallory and Andrew (Sandy) Irvine's attempt to become the first persons to reach the summit of the world's tallest mountain, Mt Everest, ninety years ago this summer. Here is my brief video of their story for those unfamiliar with it. Yea yea...rudimentary is misspelled.

Jake Norton discovers the 1938 high camp on the Northeast Shoulder of Mount Everest in 2004. The camp, located in possibly the windiest spot on Everest, was all but abandoned in 1938 and left in the elements for 66 years. All that Jake discovered was a tent pole, some old cans, bits of tent material, and some pitons and other items. Jake also takes viewers on a tour of the Northeast Shoulder of Everest, showing where Boardman & Tasker disappeared in 1982 and the possible ascent route taken by Mallory & Irvine in 1924. High winds that day, so Jake has added subtitles to help you understand what he is saying and describing. Enjoy, and visit http://www.mountainworldproductions.com for more!
Researchers at UC Irvine may have found a way to design a battery so it doesn’t lose its charge after years of use. Full Article Here: http://www.geek.com/science/lab-accident-leads-to-discovery-of-battery-that-lasts-400-times-longer-1653203/
What if a battery lasted forever? Could it power a car? Could it power your home? Could it power change? At the University of California, Irvine, we’re counting on it. UCI chemistry student Mya Le Thai has developed a technology that could potentially help a battery hold unlimited charges. While experimenting in the lab, she made a remarkable discovery that will have a huge impact on future energy consumption. By coating the gold nanowires in a thin gel, the filaments of the capacitor retain their properties under hundreds of thousands of charges. Call it a hunch. Call it a happy accident. We call it the Power of I. When you’re given the opportunity to explore and follow your convictions, when dedication and inspiration cross paths, amazing things will happen.

Sherpas The True Heroes of Mount Everest focuses on the hired Sherpas of a Swiss Everest Expedition Team. Among the Sherpas is Dawa, who has accented the Everest summit thirteen times. The film heroically showcases the role of Sherpas who make it possible for the big-pocketed Western climbers to reach the summit. Among other revelations, the film chronicles the Sherpas as they get stuck in climbers’ jam as over 50 expedition teams are vying for the summit, and all the while they fight against altitude sickness to appease their clients.
