This year marks the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing, and Neil Armstrong's curiosity and sense of adventure is now taking him to Antarctica. And how fitting for the legendary astronaut to turn his attention to Antarctica; the great white continent has frequently been described as alien and out-of-this-world. Neil will be boarding the National Geographic Explorer on its November 16, 2009 departure. This 23-day voyage includes time on the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia, the Falklands and South Orkney Islands. The vessel carries 148 passengers (including Mr. Armstrong, of course). If you want to join Neil there is still space available on this departure. Click here for more information on cabins, itinerary and pricing. From the moon to the frozen continent -- Mr. Armstrong is certainly well-traveled. I can image he has a few travel-yarns to tell.
