According tomedia reports, Mount Everest has been a disaster and victory, as climbers try to reach the summit of dangerous, icebergs. National Geographic’s upcoming documentary, “Lost on Everest,” will tell the audience about George Mallory and Andrew Irving’s adventures in 1924.
It is reported that the National Geographic team, led by climber Mark Synnott and climber Renan Ozturk, went to Mount Everest to search for Owen’s missing body again. Mallory’s body was found in 1999. Whether the climbers reached the summit before they died remains a mystery. If they had reached the top, they would have reached the summit earlier than Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay (in 1953), and were the first to do so.
The video below shows how drones detect dangerous terrain on Mount Everest without allowing climbers to venture. The team captured the full view of Mount Everest and close-up photos of key areas.
In fact, this is not an ordinary drone flight. The drone flew 28,300 feet (8,625 meters) above sea level. For comparison, the peak of Mount Qomolangma is over 29,000 feet (8,840 meters).
It is reported that “Lost on Everest” will premiere on the National Geographic Channel on June 30, when it will announce what the expedition and its drones have found in this bold expedition.
