The two benefits to mankind that Walton feels he will contribute by travelling to the North Pole are as follows:

  • The first benefit that Walton will contribute to mankind by safely navigating to and from the North Pole will be a course that no one else has dared, and thereby allowing others to venture there in the future. In other words, if Walton is successful, he will return with a map that he charted that will allow others safe access to the North Pole.
  • The second contribution that Walton will make to mankind by braving the voyage to the North Pole will be to discover the secret of the magnet that controls the needles of all compasses.
