What made him undertake this seemingly “useless” expedition? What drives someoneone to get out and expose himself the most harsh and difficult challenges of it’s kind?

In 2004, Ben Saunders became the youngest person ever to ski solo to the North Pole. In 2013, he’ll set out on another record-breaking expedition, this time to be the first to walk from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole, and back again (source Ted.com)
