    Back in August we wrote about the Polar Expedition Vehicle attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest Antarctic land crossing – exactly 100 years since the first humans reached the Geographic South Pole. Today, December 14, is the 100th anniversary of the crossing by the Roald Amundsen expedition team and the Thomson Reuters-sponsored team is on site but experiencing some difficulties. They're prepping for replacement parts to arrive on Friday, after getting "rescued" by a tractor train and a 10+ hour ride back to base camp at Union Glacier. If the weather behaves and all other things fall into place, it looks like the second official attempt will begin this Saturday.
