Norgay and Hillary not the first up Everest?  JAN 28 2010

Efforts are underway to find and recover a circa-1924 camera from near the summit of Mount Everest. The camera may contain photographic evidence that George Mallory and Andrew Irvine reached the highest point on Earth almost 30 years before Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953.

From the archives: a panoramic view from the top of Everest. Still wow.
