It would seem that by the 1950's, it would have been possible to take some sort of aircraft to the top of Mt Everest and lower someone down with a rope.

You have a lot to learn about Everest.

Have fun with the research.

Speaking of flying, Lindbergh was hailed as a hero, even though something like 37 people had already crossed the Atlantic by air

Ah, but nobody had flown across the Atlantic SOLO and NON-STOP before "Lucky Lindy".  THAT was what made his flight so remarkable -- fighting off fatigue and trying to navigate in poor visual conditions while flying an overloaded plane that needed a firm hand on the control stick at all times.  And he succeeded when far more famous aviators and larger aricraft failed.

Thanls Aldous, I didn't know if it was possible or not, just that it were possible, I wouldn't give the same recognition to the guy who went down on the rope.

DTO, yes, my point exactly.....
