The 1924 expedition was the second expedition with the goal of achieving the first ascent of Mount Everest. It was on this expedition that British mountaineers George Mallory and Andrew "Sandy" Irvine disappeared and in turn taking with them the answer to one of Everest's most enduring mysteries - did the pair successfully make the summit? Of course it was officially conquered 30 years later by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.
