The North Pole locator

  (above) from:
The North Pole is somewhere in the vicinity of where the white line points. I thought you would enjoy seeing that the Pole is not on land, but over a deep ocean trench. The Ice breaks up relentlessly from tidal forces caused by the ocean currents, the Sun and the Moon's gravity. This is what makes Polar expeditions so dangerous and extremely difficult.
