This new documentary on the Hollow Earth is a tribute devoted to a great man who, with boundless courage and altruism, dedicated his life to his country. We are referring to explorer, aviator and discoverer Admiral Richard Byrd, a great hero. Dedicated to exploration since his youth, Byrd conducted research in the polar region and made many far-reaching discoveries, without neglecting his more human side and family life.
Among his achievements, he was the first to fly over the North Pole, in 1926, with his colleague Floyd Bennett, in a Fokker F-7 Trimotor. Upon returning home, after having accomplished a feat of this magnitude, the two men received many accolades. Byrd was awarded the ‘US Congressional Medal of Honor’. Over the course of his life, he continued to be extremely successful, receiving a plethora of medals and awards, as he promoted aviation and exploration throughout his country, whilst overcoming any obstacle that presented itself. Byrd’s courage and skill was often put to the test, as he was called to overcome multiple challenges and difficulties. Despite this fact, his numerous accomplishments made him famous and afforded him the aura of a great explorer and discoverer. His expeditions to Greenland, the North Pole, and Antarctica are worthy of note, as are his intercontinental flights, and operations like Highjump and Deep Freeze, among other missions.
Yet, in his diary, the admiral recounts the most amazing of all his stories, namely, his 1947 discovery of the ‘Land beyond the Poles’. He discovered an area filled with green valleys, mountains and forests, and a city inhabited by extra-terrestrial beings, who invited him to disembark from his aircraft, so that they could give him a message. However, despite the importance of Byrd’s Hollow Earth discovery – which he communicated to the authorities –he was ordered to keep quiet about it. For many years, he was continuously threatened and ended up being forgotten, which is why he decided to write of his vast experience, leaving a legacy for humankind.
