When Antartctic explorer Robert Swan heard the ligaments in his knee snap, he felt real fear for the first time. After 43 days, he had passed the point of no return. He could not go back for help, yet if he stayed where he was, he would freeze to death. Braving the pain, Swan stood up and continued on, heading for his destination--the South Pole.
