Japanese explorer Yasunaga Ogita is set to make his second attempt at hiking alone to the North Pole in March. He'll leave Nunavut, the northernmost point in Canada in March with roughly 220 pounds of supplies since he has no way of restocking during the 500-mile trek. Ogita hopes to finish the hike in 50 days and become the first Japanese man, and only the third man in history, to complete the journey.
