Samuel August Andrée was an engineer aspiring to reach the North Pole in a hydrogen balloon in 1896. The difficult and costly expedition ended in a disastrous accident when the balloon stranded some 65 hours after take-off. The three expedition members, Andrée, Strindberg and Fraenkel tried to walk back to civilisation on the Arctic ice.
