III. Answer the questions 5%

Flying a kite can be fun, but can you imagine traveling across cold Antarctica with the help of kites? Two Belgian explorers have not only imagined doing that, but also made a plan for it,

Dixie Dansercoer and Sam Deltour attempted to set a new world record: they

张江集团学校2011学年第二学期初二英语摸底试卷

wanted to make the longest ever journey across

Antarctica, without outside support or any motor

vehicle. The current record is held by Norwegian

explorer, Rune Gjeldnes. He traveled 4,800

kilometers in ninety days, five years ago.

Dixie and Sam started their journey on

November 4, 2011. The brave men aimed to travel over 6,000 km in one hundred days. It would be impossible for them to pull their heavy sleds on their own, so they decided to make use of the wind patterns in Antarctica-and use kites to help pull their heavy sleds. This would allow them to travel an average of 60km in a day and sometimes as much as 300 km a day.

When they set out, the pair each had a sled of 190kg. The sleds contained food supplies, tents, kites and scientific equipment. During their trip, Dixie and Sam would measure wind patterns in order for the kites to work. They also had a task of providing information about the ice in Antarctica to scientists who study climate change.

Dixie has always had a strong love for adventure; he crossed Antarctic before in1997. And for Sam, being a polar explorer became his dream when he was 12 years old-after he discovered a book in his local library about the first polar crossing.
