To Boldly Go ...

At TED, the spirit of adventure runs deep. An explorer's tale can move us, enrich our knowledge and awaken the wanderer within.

Through pictures and words, we accompany Ben Saunders on his incredible journey to the North Pole -- on skis, alone. Planetary scientist Carolyn Porco takes us along the spacecraft Cassini's voyage to Saturn and its mysterious moons. And adventurer Bill Stone talks about his exploration of the deepest caverns on Earth -- and how his experiences there will help his mission to discover life in the outer reaches of the solar system.
