The Explorer Squad
Behind the scenes
The members of the Explorer Squad have achieved incredible successes. Bertrand Piccard was the first person to fly non-stop around the world in a balloon. Inge Solheim has guided teams of wounded veterans to the North and South Poles. David de Rothschild was the youngest Briton to reach both geographical Poles and raised awareness of the Pacific Garbage Patch by building a sustainable ship from reclaimed plastic bottles and sailing it from San Francisco to Sydney. It’s thrilling to imagine what they will do when they are united to work on a special mission!
