COLD – by Sir Ranulph Fiennes

COLD - by Sir Ranulph Fiennes

The Coldest Journey is one of many great tales of bravery and daring to be featured in Sir Ranulph Fiennes latest book, Cold. Fiennes has spent a lifetime working in conditions of extreme cold – his frostbitten fingers are a testament to the horrors that man can experience in such temperatures, but he also knows that the life he has led owes a great deal to the cold. Both scientifically rigorous,…

Another Night to Remember

Another Night to Remember

The sky above London was clear last night but you couldn’t see the stars because, ironically, they were obscured by the festive Christmas lighting (electric stars – no less!). It was unseasonably warm too – an unusual combination, so at odds with Antarctica where, it has just been revealed, the lowest ever recorded temperature was experienced in July of this year at -93⁰C. That is well over…
