But that's not all, folks! Another American explorer named Frederick Cook claimed to have got to the North Pole as early as April 1908, but he failed to provide a solid proof to that expedition, so his claim wasn't widely believed. Both Peary and Cook did not provide scientific evidence to their success in reaching the North Pole, so the question Who Did It First remains a subject of controversy. The first 100% proven expedition to the North Pole was lead by the famous Norwegian Polar explorer Roald Amundsen aboard an airship in 1926.
