An Eye At The Top Of The World - Presented by Pete Takeda and Jonathan Copp - $5
In the 1960¹s, the CIA and the Indian Government attempted to deploy a plutonium-powered spy device on Nanda Devi and Nanda Kot in the Indian Himalayas. While Nanda Kot's device was successfully deployed, Nanda Devi rejected all attempts and the plutonium was lost and never recovered. In August 2005, Takeda, Copp, Neptune¹s own Chuck Bird, and Sarah Thompson and retraced the spy route on Nanda Kot (22,510 feet) and in the process nearly perished in a massive avalanche. Later Copp and Takeda attempted an alpine style ascent of Nanda Devi East (24,389 feet). Don¹t miss this amazing journey! Show starts at 8:00 PM.
