Mr. Fuchs, does age slow you down in your activities? When you turn 70, you’re obviously not as fit as you were when you were 30. I’m also interested in different things today than I was 40 years ago. I can no longer and do not want to run across Antarctica in a sled. But I can do meaningful projects, and I’m looking for collaboration with researchers. The expeditions used to be mainly extreme sports, today I’m concerned with climate change and environmental protection, with the changes in the oceans.
