Photos of the expedition of Robert Scott to the South pole.
In 1910 the Englishman Robert Scott led the British expedition to the Antarctic. They had to make many scientific discoveries. However, when they reached the Pole, they were comprehended by deep disappointment from ahead of the Norwegians. Two members of the expedition died almost at the beginning, as Scott himself and two of his companions frozen in a tent on March 19, 1912. The survey collected the most interesting pictures of that sad expedition.
