I believe it is in our nature to explore, to reach out into the unknown. The only true failure would be not to explore at all.
— Ernest Shackleton, explorer of the Antarctic, 1914
We've spent years of careful planning. We've sourced the most advanced specialist equipment and brought together a team of like-minded experts – including explorers, scientists, and innovators - to embark on a bold human adventure.

Some of us will travel where nobody has ever travelled before. Only a handful of people can say they have been to both the North and South poles, but no one has ever travelled through both poles - by earth and sea alone - in a single journey. It’s going to take sustained focus, courage, and intellectual curiosity.

Through exploration, we want to contribute to scientific knowledge and collect data that will change our understanding of the universe, engaging individuals, organizations, and people along this extraordinary journey. At a time of crucial change for our survival on the planet, we feel compelled to contribute and engineer new and brilliant solutions to keep the earth’s inhabitants healthy and human civilization thrive. We know that science and new technologies have the power to improve how we live and the impact we have on our surroundings.

It's time to do things differently. But how?

Innovation doesn't happen by sitting in an office. It requires action. The action of individuals who are willing to take extreme risks, learn from their failures, spark change in others - and be inspired. As actions have consequences.

We want to inspire today's innovators, technologists, and change-makers, to boldly reach for the unknown. We want to support climate advocates by providing the science they need to claim for change.

On our journey, we will uncover stories of human endeavour, tap into the wisdom of ancient cultures, and experience the world's natural wonders.
We will share our heart-stopping adventures and experiences with as many people around the world as possible, and hope they will be inspired to make their wildest dreams and most daring ideas a reality.

Like all great expeditions of discovery, we don't know what challenges or hardships lie ahead.

How will we overcome difficulties? What opportunities will we uncover? Will our data contribute to ground-breaking discoveries? How will it influence the way we progress as humans?

Right now, there are more unknowns than knowns. More questions than answers.
But we do know that when great collaboration, technology and an indomitable human spirit come together, the unexpected happens.
