1999: The body of British climber George Mallory is found on Mount Everest 75 years after his disappearance in 1924. Mallory and his climbing partner, Andrew "Sandy" Irvine, had disappeared while trying to make the first ascent of the mountain. It remains unknown whether or not they reached the summit before they died.
