[edit] Information

Some may assume that the world has been adequately explored, but this beautiful video from National Geographic comes as a bold announcement that some fantastic exploring has yet to be done. The new generation of explorers featured in this video, which includes Dr. Robert Ballard, celebrated finder of the Titanic; deep-sea researcher Sylvia Earle; noted Egyptian archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass; and some younger mountaineers, mappers, and dinosaur hunters, embody the bold spirit that National Geographic has always championed. Ballard's dive to the bottom of the Mediterranean is awe inspiring and a trip into a Tibetan jungle, in search of a mythical waterfall that turns out to be entirely real, is so realistically photographed that viewers will be shifting nervously in their seats as they peak over the edge of cliffs and into the rushing waters of the Tsangpo Gorge. A star of the new generation of mountaineers, Heidi Howkins, who set out to conquer the world's tallest peaks, Everest and K2, in one year, speaks eloquently about what makes an explorer, and her insights about seeking challenges both physical and mental resonate deeply. This video is a treat to watch, but the spectacular camera work aside, it is a thoughtful look at human nature and the compulsion some have to go beyond the edge of the map
