On July 11, 1897, three brave men took off in a balloon in attempt to fly-over the North Pole. The real fate of this expedition would not be discovered for over thirty years. They were only the latest in a line of explorers who risked their lives in the brutal and unforgiving cold of the Arctic. Why did they do it? Tune in to Inquiry tonight when we talk with writer and biographer ALEC WILKINSON about his thrilling new history THE ICE BALLOON: S. A. ANDRÉE and the HEROIC AGE OF ARCTIC EXPLORATION.
