I think we're just as excited as Alexander Skarsgård is about his 208-mile trek to the South Pole!!
We were ecstatic that he was invited to be on one of three teams racing to the southern most location on the planet, along with Prince Harry and Dominic West from The Wire! We mean, seriously, it sounds like a movie!
They're doing it for an amazing cause, and here's what ASkars had to say about it:
A colony of 9000 penguins…count it…9000 PENGUINS…made its first contact with humans when a group of explorers found them in Antarctica.
Expedition leader Alain Hubert and two others rode snowmobiles across the icy continent to where they believed the penguins were living. Satellite images caught the colony in 2009 but there was no proof until the expedition.
The penguins were discovered in December and the team recorded video of the Emperor penguins!
