WORDS BY PORTIA LARGE 

The compelling urge of mankind to explore and discover has led him to go where no man has gone before. Whether it was the early pioneers exploring new territory, burning new trails, mapping new continents, surviving harsh wilderness or Kay Cottee circumnavigating the globe, it would seem mankind feels compelled against all odds to conquer new frontiers – on land, in the oceans and of course in what has been termed the final frontier – space. Few of us will explore outer space, but you can become a diver, feel weightless and explore over 70% of the planet underwater.
