Watch “Jumping from the Edge of Space” and “Shackleton: Death or Glory”

ECAD Panel videos of “Jumping from the Edge of Space” and “Shackleton: Death or Glory” are now online. Both panels were held on Saturday March 21st, 2015 at the UN Economic & Social Council Chamber during the 111th Explorers Club Annual Dinner weekend.

“Jumping from the Edge of Space” features free-fall record holders Col. Joe Kittinger and Alan Eustace, moderated by Board Member Richard Garriott de Cayeux. The presentation features a demonstration with the actual suit Eustace used to break Felix Baumgartner’s free-fall world record.

“Shackleton: Death or Glory” features an introduction from ECAD co-chair Vanessa O’Brien, commentary from the Hon. Alexandra Shackleton, and a presentation by environmental scientist and adventurer Tim Jarvis. His “Shackleton Epic” expedition traced the footsteps of legendary polar explorer Ernest Shackleton, who with 5 companions in 1916 completed an incredible journey across 800 miles of the roughest ocean in the world from Elephant Island, Antarctica to mountainous South Georgia Island.
