On June 8, 1924, George Mallory disappeared on Mount Everest during his third summit attempt. He was almost 38 years old. He was carrying rudimentary equipment, including a few heavy oxygen tanks, and reaching the "third pole" would be as challenging as going to the moon. At over 29,000 feet, Mount Everest is the world's tallest mountain. Early explorers considered it the “third pole,” since the North and South Poles were discovered only decades earlier.
