Norwegians Borge Ousland and Thorleif Thorleifsson (real name) are planning to sail around the North Pole. It will be the first circumnavigation of the pole — a feat that was previously impossible. But thanks to the receding ice caps, the Norsemen will leave from Oslo in June. The trip is expected to total 10,000 miles.
