Being an explorer in the 21st century
The American-based Explorers Club is full of venerable old men who have
all been the frst to sail somewhere or climb something and it was all very
diffcult and dangerous to do. But the defnition of exploration needs to
be expanded as younger explorer/scientists have to pioneer in a different
way. At this year’s science weekend, the club’s new members were invited
to present their ideas. These include robots that can explore caves

This all began one evening in the noughties when
some Australian men started a friendly duel with
foam noodles (okay, they had previously been to
the pub) but out of this grew the idea of battles
where the armour and swords would be made of
cardboard. One of the men had long been making
cardboard suits for his own amusement and
walked around town in them: invaluable experience.
But Boxwars now has a worldwide following. No one
is hurt, and the idea is not to conquer; instead,
the battle is over when no piece of cardboard is
left standing. There are no losers, as one of the

every vote, however isolated, and often, at
the end of a long train journey, the terrain
is so remote that election offcials have to
continue by elephant or on foot for three
days. And also, bear in mind that they may
well have to keep a lookout for lions, tigers
and cobras.
