Robert F. Scott
Today we feature of picture of Robert F. Scott, captain of the ill fated Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole. As we have seen this week, the party did make it to the South Pole, but all five died on the return journey. Scott and two other died only 11 miles from the supply depot and camp they were desperately trying to reach. In researching the expedition, it appears it was somewhat poorly planned, and they left little margin for error.
