Arc­tic Bal­loon Fail: Did you know? On July 11 (that’s today!), 1897, Swedish engi­neer-turned aero­naut and polar explor­er Salomon August Andrée set out in a hydro­gen bal­loon of his own design to reach the Geo­graph­ic North Pole. He did­n’t make it. Dur­ing lift-off, the bal­loon lost two of the three slid­ing ropes that the expe­di­tion planned to use to land safe­ly. Then came the storm. Ten miles into the expe­di­tion, Andrée and his two com­pan­ions were forced to hun­ker in the bal­loon’s bas­ket as hor­rif­ic winds rav­aged their con­trap­tion from all sides. After near­ly 300 miles of freez­ing flight with over 65 hours in the air, the team was forced onto the ice, where they some­what mirac­u­lous­ly land­ed The Eagle (the name of their bal­loon) with lit­tle dam­age. The expe­di­tion then attempt­ed to push on by foot, drag­ging sledges full of sup­plies and shoot­ing the occa­sion­al polar bear for food. None of the men sur­vived to reach the pole. His­to­ri­ans believe the explor­ers died from ingest­ing polar bear flesh crawl­ing with par­a­sites. Andrée’s cam­paign, though a source of nation­al­is­tic pride at the time, is now used as an exam­ple of one of those mis­sions that was so doomed from the begin­ning it nev­er should have been attempt­ed.
