Alan Arnette has an excellent post on Outside detailing the costs of reaching Earth's highest summit, Mount Everest. I've never thought about it before but it totally makes sense that there are a lot of things that go on to make that climb, right? And all those things cost a lot of money! Like £52,800-a-lot-of-money.
Hoping to gain insight into climate change, international researchers, with the help of surveillance experts Mobotix, have installed a solar-powered webcam in the Nepalese Himalayas to capture images of the top of Mount Everest. That's right. Mountains are shooting movies now.
