Edmund Hillary, Edmund Shackleton, Marco Polo, and Neil Armstrong all accomplished feats that forever change humanity - breaking boundaries, redefining our limitations, and going where no one ever dared. But who was the greatest? We looked back at the feats of history's most prolific explorers on land, air, and ice, and picked our winners.
By Sea (Round 3)
Winner - Magellan: Magellan's circumnavigation may be a technicality (where he died in the Philippines was at a longitude beyond a journey he'd made from the opposite direction), but at least he didn't go crazy; Cook made his crew eat inedible meat, and eventually was killed, dismembered, and (fittingly) cooked.
