The great Ronald Amundsen!

Ever wonder if exploration continued after the likes of Magellan, Vespucci or Columbus? Well, the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration in the 1900s-1920s had explorers like Amundsen attempting to reach the extremes of the planet. Mr. Amundsen was the first person to reach the South Pole, traverse the Northwest Passage and lead the first expedition to the North Pole. That’s quite a resume. At a time when trade routes were the life to international commerce, the question of a Northwest Passage had countries desperately navigating the rough Arctic seas. #RonaldAmundsen was the first to safely find such a path and complete the mapping of the world’s reminding unknown coastlines. #wwshero #wwsplaces #wwshy#history #hero #heroes
