Summary
The natural home of our species is at sea level. The higher we go, the less oxygen there is in the air and the harder we find it to survive. In this program, doctor of extreme medicine Kevin Fong conducts a series of experiments to determine how the human body responds to altitude. He climbs one of the tallest mountains in the Alps and subjects himself to a sudden depressurization at 25,000 feet.
