  • The publisher of his book needs to have it translated into English (and other languages). I'd buy it.

  • Sheesh, that commitment to his wife to make sure she'd be taken care of. Thats real love.

  • Then he was adopted by the Fremen and rode Shai-Hulud at the head of an army against the Harkonnen and the Emperor's Sardaukar.

    • And how can this be? For he _is_ the Kwisatz Haderach!

  • Has anyone ever made a film about this miracle?If they have, what is it called?

  • Opposite to the very hot Sahara marathon, there's an equally grueling and dangerous marathon across the icy cold North Pole.

  • if anyone would donate to me, oh, lets say, 100 grand, i would happily make this movie. I would need 200k to do it right, but 100k i can capture the essence of the movie. Send me the money asap and I will get it done within 1 year of me receiving the funds or your money back.

  • I feel soooo bad for him. Such good hope he had

  • I survived 1 week and few days in Sahara. But we found a dirty water well . Smelling and dark . We have no choice to drink or we die . This was 2014 from Niger to Libya. It was a worse trip. I almost give up .but was fine . Life is not always easy

  • This has to be one of the most dramatic stories of survival in the past many years.This endurance Runner was in excellent physical condition, and his body strength and stamina far above the average man's. His physical condition is what brought him through this lost in the Desert nightmare and as mentioned there was permanent damage to some of his body organs. If he had not found that small Oasis with water he would have died in that Hell Hole that has only a few living small animals that can survive there.

  • Good video. Metric please :)

  • I’d be wondering where I could get a mask for the incredibly dangerous virus that has a scary survivable rate

  • A movie should be made about this event just to highlight the bravery and willingness of this man to survive all those near death situations.

    • @wanderer10k he’s running in a desert. You wouldn’t do that unless you have

    • Is it bravery though?

  • Theres a bigger compass called the sun..

  • i think this has to be a bullshit story(at least partially), how could he have possibly gone that far after basically spending about(or at least) 3 days not moving? (first 2 days waiting for rescue, the temple where he made his home for a few days, and the oasis, plus nights to sleep), to go a distance from new york city to boston, and going over mountains, in the sahara, mostly without water, and with slashed wrists from a failed suicide attempt? nuh uh! sorry, it just doesn't add up.

    • @F R that's right, just about any idiot can tell direction by sun or stars, but much easier with the sun(morning sunrise, east set keep an eye on your shadow, hard in the winter in Seattle where there's no sun, easy in the desert where there's always sun), plus, this guy had training. Why then did he go southwest for so long? Any straight west or east route would have him pass over the trail again, which was marked. No way it's possible to cover that distance on foot on uneven terrain, sand, rocks, hills etc. New York to Boston is far even if you had to do it on roads. That would be 72 hours of non-stop walking which divided by 12, if you were to be walking literally the entire day nonstop is more than 10 days, so again, it doesn't add up, especially when you consider that he himself stated that he traveled in the early morning and in the late evening to avoid the heat of the day. I think what may be the case here is that this guy had it all planned so that he could write a book. stayed out in the desert surviving and spinning a fantastic yarn for his future book deal and fame and possibly, or most likely, with some (Touareg? ) accomplices. From Wikipedia article about this guy/incident: --In 1998, Marathon Des Sables founder Patrick Bauer told Men’s Journal that Prosperi’s story was a fabrication, saying : “Don’t listen to Mr. Prosperi, his story is a fabrication. He will have you believe he is Superman. It is physiologically impossible for a man to travel more than 200 kilometers in the desert without water. This is a supernatural act. It’s possible that he got genuinely lost for a few days. But all the rest rings false. We believe that early on he was picked up by someone. And then he decided to hide out for a while.[10] “He thought he could make a killing out of this if he prolonged his ordeal. He thought he could sell his story to the tabloids. He aspired to be the star of his own movie.”[10]-- Cool story bro, tell it again!

    • Totally agree ... the competition was supposed to be 250km in 6 days with regular supply stations. If he really didnt move for 3 days he apparently somehow managed to keep almost the same pace (280+km in 7days) without any support (besides a few bats and 1 oasis) and severe dehydration. I also really question his route .... considering that he apparently ran straight to the soutwest he must have known where he was going (so either his compass worked after all or he managed to determine the cardinal directions by using the sun and stars). But why the f would he ever run south at all when he shouldve known that there is only more desert in that direction and going north/northwest will get him back to civilization within 100km or so. So many things just dont add up at all.

  • 47 C is about the everyday temperature we have here in thr summer and in the winter is drops to about 30

    • Adrar, Algeria / Taoudenni, Mali / Dallol, Ethiopia / Death Valley, CA... The hottest places on Earth during peak heat season usually experience official average highs around 47°C under shelter in summer.

  • I can listen to this guys voice for HOURS.

  • Sahara: I’m so hot lol Death Valley: lol amatur

  • A marathon in the sahara?... but why?

  • why didnt he just walk to the west??? i mean he walked to the east for 10 hours and had a compass

  • There has to be a Hollywood movie about this.

  • I remember watching a documentary on this in like 2005. Memberberries

  • If that girl wasn't wandering out in the wilderness, if he didn't find that shrine, if he didn't find the oasis........he would have died........

  • This gave me a reality check and reminds me to count my blessings. Man, that was terrifying. I would have died in 3 days or less if that was me.

  • What’s the name of this race ?

  • Moral of the story: dont challenge nature

  • if i was alone i would be pretty fucked but if i had a person with me i would have food

  • 180 km its not a big deal

  • How on EARTH IS THIS NOT A MOVIE YET?

  • Temperature in Celsius and distance in miles? What?

  • they could equip the runners with a GPS and transmitter. I guess that is to easy.

  • My name is mauro

  • Can someone make a movie about this?

  • How to make me afraid of the Sahara

  • lmao i think some parts of canada are becoming the sahara

  • didn't he have a handkerchief or something?

  • i'm no expert but i think i'd die

  • he surely wear that compass just for the rule, as going north will always get you out of that at some stage

  • Bats on the roof 🦇 drinking their blood 🩸 CORONAVIRUS 🦠

  • The Algerian desert is the most beautiful desert in the world. It's amazing as if you are on another planet

    • Time to attempt suicide knowing i'll die either way at the planet

  • 8:42 this guy thinks 40 Celsius is a lot bro cone visit Kuwait

  • short answer? I would die, slowly at first, then quickly...

  • -You are here... What's next?? -You are FUCKED lol

  • pfft aussies deal with 45 degree heat every summer (this is a joke dont take it seriously)

  • 0:31 just use PSI Healing smh

  • Wonder if Skillshare can teach me how to survive like he did?

  • Hope to see a bird and follow to water

  • The thick stick postprandially judge because ukraine ordinarily cheer aboard a doubtful smoke. youthful, overjoyed dipstick

  • Minecraft lied to me all this time

  • If I was stuck in the Sahara Desert I would feel very hot.

  • The Sahara is like Earths future when the sun goes red giant.

    • The Earth won't exist when it goes red giant... Unless we get knocked off orbit or something.

  • Washington State experiences higher temperatures Polo

  • He didn't really get lost nor survived cuz it was planned lol with backup plans.. It's not the same nerves with those who actually gets lost with no backup plans and actually have to survive without preparations. Smh

    • @Cory While he might have gotten lost and endured horrible things this story just doesnt sound real. How did he keep almost the same pace as that marathon event? Its one of the hardest competitions anyone can do and it was supposed to be 250km in 6 days with regular supply stations and daily rests. After already running half of this competition he somehow managed to go an additional 280+km in 9-10 days (out of which he didnt move at all for at least 2 days according to this video) while also passing a mountain range?! All he had to survive was food the blood of a few bats and 1 oasis?! Also, why did he go straight to the south west instead of going north/northwest? Going south is literally the worst direction to choose in this case. A lot of things just dont add up. Maybe someone picked him up in that bat tower or smth. But the events as described in this video are literally impossible.

    • Wtf are you talking about Why are you hating on this

  • The highest temperature ever recorded in the Sahara Desert is 58°C. At night, the average temperature is between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius. However, temperatures in the Sahara are not constant; there is variability according to the geographical areas and their climatic characteristics.

    • @Creedence Bakken It's beautiful. Laying down staring at the stars.

    • Nighttime temperature is between 10-20°c? That’s beautiful af I’ll love that lol

  • So did he experience all these claims 🤔

  • Zamzam

  • We have the same temperatures in iraq, yesterday it was 47 Celsius

  • Why the hell would he go south. Use the sun man damn!

  • now you can put a GPS tracker up their ass so you find them, no?

  • Die? What am I supposed to do?

  • Only 47C?A couple weeks ago in Mostar B&H it was around 51 degrees CELSIUS for maybe 3~4 days

  • The movie Revenant is made on him.

  • Incredibly

  • Incredibly incredible

  • All I can say is The Spanish Sahara is gone

  • would be cool to have a similar video with opposing conditions; stranded alone in a tundra.

  • I’m honestly surprised he didn’t use the position of the sun to figure out where north is, or is there something I missed that would’ve made that difficult for some reason?

    • He could tell where North is but without any clue as to where he was in the first place, it wouldn't do him much good.
