On June 8, 1924, George Mallory and Sandy Irvine set out to stand on the roof of the world, where no one had stood before.

Irvine is believed to have carried a Kodak camera with him to record their attempt, but it, along with his body, had never been found. Did the frozen film in that camera have a photograph of Mallory and Irvine on the summit before they disappeared into the clouds, never to be seen again?
