1897: Fridtjof Nansen, Polar Explorer Chris August 22, 2012 1800-1899, Famous people 4 CommentsFavourited 623 times Add to favourites 4 Responses Tom August 22, 2012 Nansen – now that’s my kind of explorer. How to reach the North Pole? Stock an ice-ship full of nice food and drink, employ an on-board chef and let the arctic current do it’s work. Of course then there was the bit where they left the ship and had to eat their dogs… but the first bit was genius!!
