Henry Worsley, British Explorer Trying to Cross Antarctic Alone, Has Died

The British explorer Henry Worsley, who was trying to be the first person to cross the Antarctic alone and without support, died on Sunday, just 30 miles short of completing his 1,000-mile trek. He was 55.

His death was announced on the website for the expedition, Shackleton Solo, which chronicled Mr. Worsley’s effort to complete Sir Ernest Shackleton’s unfinished journey to cross the Antarctic, which left him and his team stranded in 1915.
