Russian Boy to Be the Youngest North Pole's Explorer

Russian Boy to Be the Youngest North Pole's Explorer

A 14-year-old Russian boy joins the North Pole expedition, so he may become the youngest polar explorer in the world.

       The North Pole is not the best place for children, so they are usually not allowed to join polar expeditions. But an exception was made in a favour of Alexander Petrov, a high-school student from Kirov, who was allowed to join a group of young people 16-18. Their goal is to reach the North Pole by ski. 

      Of course, it was made with the approval of Petrov’s father, who called to the center and asked the organizers of the expedition to help the boy realize his dream – to visit the North Pole.

       The expedition is scheduled to be held in summer 2012. Its organizer is a Russia’s well-known polar explorer Dmitry Shparo and his charitable foundation "Adventure Club". It will be the fifth expedition to the North Pole made by the club. Last year, a group of seven young people with their adult guides covered more than 100 kilometers on skis in seven days to reach the North Pole.

      Alexander Petrov may claim a record with the Guinness World Records if he completes the voyage. But his achievement might not to be registered, as the Guinness Book organization is trying to avoid encouraging dangerous exploration attempts made by younger and younger people.
