Remembering the Everest conqueror

Sir Edmund Hillary, with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, were the first conquerors of the world's tallest mountain, Everest. He achieved this at age 33 in 1953, an amazing feat considering how poor mountain climbing knowledge and technology was back then compared to now. At age 88, he died of a heart attack a few days ago.
