The following CNN news video is about an adventurer named Ranulph Fiennes. His new project is to lead a team across the continent of Antarctica on foot. They will be attempting this feat during the winter and in the dark. This video was added to the CNN website on September 19, 2012.
Fiennes is 68 years old, and he expects to take a team of 6 on this expedition. They will be attempting to walk about 4000 kilometers across Antarctica. The trek is expected to last about 6 months, and it will end at the Ross Sea.
The adventure is expected to raise around $10 million. However, it will be quite dangerous because rescue teams will not be available. They say the conditions will be too harsh for rescue teams to attempt to help.
