To the South Pole
On 17 January 1912, Captain Robert Scott and his party became the second group of people ever to reach the South Pole; the first was led by a Norwegian, Roald Amundsen, and had arrived 34 days earlier. Scott and his companions never made it back to Britain, dying from starvation and exposure on the return journey.
