I've no idea what kind of man Edmund Hillary was, but to paraphrase a line from Firefly, he did the impossible, and that made him mighty. Everest is still a killer of a mountain, but these days it's like Piccadilly Circus up there. Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first human beings ever to set foot on its summit, at a time when no one was even sure it was physically possible.
