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.
