On this day in 1912, after a two-month ordeal, the expedition of
British explorer Robert Falcon Scott (above) arrives at the South
Pole only to find that Roald Amundsen, the Norwegian explorer,
had preceded them by just over a month. Disappointed, the
exhausted explorers prepared for a long and difficult journey
back to their base camp.

Weather on that return journey was exceptionally bad, two
members perished, and Scott and the other two survivors
were trapped in their tent by a storm only 11 miles from their
base camp. Scott wrote a final entry in his diary in late March
and the frozen bodies of he and his two compatriots were
recovered eight months later.
