Prince Harry has spent the night in a giant freezer to simulate the conditions he will face when he treks to the South Pole in November.
The 29-year-old royal, who will race with a team of injured British servicemen and women against groups from the United States and the Commonwealth, spent around 20 hours in a cold chamber where he was subjected to temperatures of -31 degrees, with wind speeds of 45 miles per hour.
Alongside four teammates – all amputees who lost limbs after sustaining injuries in Afghanistan – Harry tested the clothing he will wear on the 200-mile expedition.
Actors Alexander Skarsgård from the “True Blood” series and Dominic West of “The Wire” will also participate in the race.
“Star Wars” creator George Lucas’ proposal for a museum to showcase his art collection is among three development projects being considered for a plot of land at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.
The three finalists for the eight-acre site facing Crissy Field in San Francisco’s Presidio were presented Monday.
The second proposal is by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. It would retain much of the site’s open space and include displays about the history of the Presidio. The third is by architecture firm WRNS Studio and consulting firm Chora and would create a hybrid museum and science and nature center.
