As Jake Lingeman described Scott’s bittersweet ordeal:

“It was Nov. 1, 1911 when Scott and his five-man team set out from Cape Evans on an 1,800-mile journey from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back. The team reached the pole on Jan. 17, making them the first British group to get all the way there. But they never made it back, all involved dying about 100 miles shy of the journey’s end.”
