The point of the expedition was not so much to reach the South Pole, just to show that it is possible.
They've shown how much more can be done with green technology, especially in the Antarctic where supplies are extremely expensive.


(it went to the Antarctic all right. Just not to the pole. As it turns out, only a surprisingly small area of the Antarctic qualifies as 'South pole'.)
