"British explorer and team leader, Robert Falcon Scott reached the South Pole during his ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition on 17 January 1912. It was his second attempt and 34 days after Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen got there first. On the return trip, Scott and his team died from starvation and extreme temperatures. In this link below are a collection of photos from the trip."
