La última selfie del explorador que murió en la Antártida - EntornoInteligente

El Clarín / El explorador británico Henry Worsley intentaba emular la expedición fallida que emprendió hace un siglo su compatriota Ernest Shackleton. Quería ser el primer hombre en cruzar solo, sin siquiera la ayuda de perros, la Antártida. Estuvo a sólo 48 kilómetros de lograr su objetivo, pero murió deshidratado y agotado.

En la cuenta de Twitter @ShackletonSolo y en su blog de viaje, el explorador fue contando la severa misión, en la que pensaba ocupar 75 días para recorrer 1.770 kilómetros. Las fotos que Worsley subió impactan y cobran otra relevancia ahora, conocida su muerte.
