Amazing drone footage captures never before seen areas of Antarctica

 Melbourne-based adventurer Liam Suckling has scaled Antarctica’s tallest mountain and has captured astonishing drone footage of some never-before-seen areas of the icy continent.

The summit of Mt Vinson is almost five kilometres above sea level, and is more than twice as high as Australia’s highest peak, Mount Kosciuszko. It is the world’s eighth-highest mountain, and it was discovered only in 1958, five years after Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay scaled Mount Everest.
