It’s probably a coincidence that UND’s moon rover project ended only a day after a symposium celebrating another feat of exploration.
On Tuesday, UND and the Canadian government honored Vilhjalmar Stefansson, an alumnus who was the last person to discover new land on Planet Earth.

Will Steger, this era’s most prominent Arctic explorer, was in Grand Forks for the event.

Famous as the leader of the first teams to reach both the North Pole and South Pole by dogsled, Minnesota explorer Will Steger, 69, is also a photographer, woodworker, teacher, self-taught architect, designer and environmentalist.
Over the past 40 years he has designed and tested extreme-weather gear for North Face, Lands’ End, Patagonia, Marmot, Gander Mountain, Gore-Tex and other outdoor suppliers. His Steger mukluks are a favorite footwear for dogsledders, and their huskies are probably wearing Steger harnesses.
