北极探险家罗伯特.培利 (Robert E. Peary) 出生

生于1856年月6日的罗伯特.培利在他还是小孩子的时候,就梦想着要到人称「世界的屋顶」的冰冷北极探险。当时他们没有保暖的防水透气外套,也没有太空人穿的特殊服饰,更不用说行动电话或者是高级的导航装置,但是罗伯特.培利和他的助手麦特.韩森 (Matt Henson) 1905年出发前往北极,进行了第一次的探险。在那之前,从来没有人到达过北极。的确,培利花了许多年的时间,才让这次的探险能够成行。

Even as a boy, Robert E. Peary, born on May 6, 1856, dreamed of exploring the "roof of the world," the frozen Arctic north. They had no parkas or space-age fabrics and no cell phones or advanced navigational devices, but Robert E. Peary and his assistant, Matt Henson, set out to reach the North Pole for the first time in 1905. No one had been there before. Indeed, it took Peary years to put the expedition together.
