Leading  a team of five other explorers in a quest to achieve a feat no other human has managed, Sir Ranulph Fiennes is planning to walk across 2000 miles across Antarctica in 2013. Antarctica is the worlds highest continent – covered by an average ice sheet 1.6 km (a mile) thick with some of the lowest temperatures recorded on Earth.

The ship leaves in March and will take a month to get there and the actual crossing, accompanied by two bulldozers, is expected to take 6 months. Sir Ralph is hoping the event will race is $10 million (£6.2 million) for Seeing is Believing, a blindness charity.
