Robert E. Peary was a well-known adventurer and arctic explorer who in 1909 set out to reach the North Pole. When he returned from the expedition, he claimed to have reached the pole on April 7, 1909. This report made him into an international celebrity. Though some historians have expressed doubts that Peary did in fact reach the North Pole, three arguments provide strong support for the truth of Peary’s claim.
First, the National Geographic Society put together a committee that was instructed to conduct a thorough investigation of Peary’s records and equipment. At the end of the investigation, the committee concluded that Peary’s accounts were consistent and persuasive and declared that he had indeed reached the North Pole.
Second, a recent expedition provides support for Peary’s claim that he reached the North Pole in only 37 days after setting out from Ellesmere Island off the coast of Greenland. Skeptics used to argue that Peary could not have traveled that fast, since even modern snowmobiles take longer to cover the same distance. However, a British explorer named Tom Avery recently made the same trek in less than 37 days. In fact, Avery used the same kind of dogsled and the same number and breed of dogs as Peary had. Thus, Peary’s claims are not impossible, and he very well might have been telling the truth.
Third, there are photographs taken by Peary that support his claim to have reached the North Pole. Measuring the shadows in Peary’s photographs makes it possible to calculate the Sun’s position in the sky. The Sun’s position established from the photographs corresponds exactly to the Sun’s position as it should have been at the North Pole on that day. This provides strong evidence that Peary reached the North Pole and took the photographs there.

Both the reading and lecture discuss whether renown adventurer Robert E. Peary, reached to the North Pole. The former argues that there is no suspicious that Robert E. Peary reach the North Pole and there are three possible reasons to support their points, but latter challenges each of these points.

First of all, the author of the passage asserts that germane detection by the National Geographic society justify that Robert E. Peary reached the North pole. However, the professor in lecture contends that this hypothesis does not hold true because the the National Geographic society only investigate for 2 days, since the member of those society was very close friends of t Robert E. Peary. In fact, the examine was not done carefully and bias as he gave bribe to the National Geographic society.

Secondly, according to the passage, the expert opined that likewise British explorer Tom Avery recently reach the pole less than 37 days, Robert E. Peary reached the North Pole in only 37 days. In contrast, the lecture objects this idea. She supports her argument by presenting the example of Tom Avery travels without any foods and other stuffs with him, whereas Robert E. Peary went through airplane. Moreover, Tom Avery travel during favorable climate, while Peary travel during the harsh weather which is quite inconvenience with the reading.

Finally, the passage claims that measuring the shadow and calculating the sun's position in the sky of photographs, which was taken by the Robert E. Peary evident that he reached to the North pole. Nevertheless, like two hypothesis before, the professor in her lecture proclaims that this hypothesis is not feasible because the shadow of photographs are already faded and does not give precise measurement.
