Default Mount Everest Grows on the May 29 DCT!

It was exactly 58 years ago, on May 29 1953, that Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tensing Norgay, reached the summit of Mount Everest. Hilary was a New Zealander, and a beekeeper by trade.



How high is Mount Everest? You all know that it’s the highest point on Earth.



It’s 29,035 feet above sea level, and every year it “grows” by a few millimeters.



It’s 2/3 of the way through the air of the earth’s atmosphere!



It’s at the same height as the cruising altitude of jet airliners!



At that height, there is very little oxygen... 66% less than at sea level; and to make matters worse,it’s very very cold. Climbers use portable oxygen tanks for the climb. But in 1978, two climbers achieved the impossible: reaching the top of Mount Everest WITHOUT supplemental oxygen! They were Reinhold Messner of Italy and Peter Habeler of Austria.



How many people have reached the top of Mount Everest? More than 5000. Some days are more crowded than others. On May 10, 1993, a grand total of 40 climbers climbed to the top, all on the same day! But they don’t stay up there for very long. The longest stay was by Babu Chiri Sherpa in 2003: 21 hours! (“Sherpa” is the name of a people, but also a last name).



Quote: The first recorded attempt to climb Mount Everest dates back to 1921, and one member of that expedition was the British climber George Mallory. He’s the one who made the well-known quote, when asked why he wanted to climb Everest: he answered, “Because it’s there”.
