I am the editor of the Adventurers’ Club of Los Angeles News, a monthly publication of the Adventurers’ Club of Los Angeles – founded in 1912. This month I featured an article about the August 2 exploit of a club member from Russia, Anatoly Sagalevitch, who piloted a mini-submarine under the ice at the Geographic North Pole, to plant a Russian Federation flag on the bottom, 2.5 miles deep. Here is an extract from the magazine, with the complete article including accompanying photos.
