Title -  Arctic Explorer Robert Falcon Scott

 

Description -  Captain Robert Falcon Scott (June 6, 1868 - March 29, 1912), a British Royal Navy officer and explorer who led two expeditions to the Antarctic regions: the Discovery Expedition of 1901 - 1904 and the ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition of 1910 - 1913. On the first expedition, he set a new southern record by marching to latitude 82°S and discovered the Antarctic Plateau, on which the South Pole is located. On the second venture, Scott led a party of five which reached the South Pole on January 17, 1912, less than five weeks after Roald Amundsen's Norwegian expedition. A planned meeting with supporting dog teams from the base camp failed, despite Scott's written instructions, and at a distance of 150 miles from their base camp and 11 miles from the next depot, Scott and his companions died. When Scott and his party's bodies were discovered, they had in their possession the first Antarctic fossils ever discovered.
