Norwegians Will Sail Around North Pole


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.
