When Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing
Norgay became the first men to stand on the summit of Mount Everest,
the news took four days to filter back to Britain. Now, over fifty-three
years later, technology has not only changed how the world hears
about such exciting news, it has also changed how Expeditions
communicate with the world.
The Summits of Canada Expedition is
proud to be working with some of Canada's technological leaders
as we bring our journey to homes, businesses and schools around
Through the use of satellites, video
conferencing technology, Global Positioning Systems computer generated
mapping, and internet broadcasts, the technologies being used
on the CanaTREK Expedition will enable you to see and hear an
adventure of a lifetime.
