In 2010, explorer Sebastian Copeland and partner Eric McNair-Landry crossed 2,300 km of the Greenland ice sheet towing 240 lb sleds on skis and kites. Braving crevasses, blizzards and exhaustion, they set fresh tracks in the heart of the ice and a new world record: the longest distance traveled in 24 hours by natural means - a remarkable 595km.
