The Race to the Pole
On 1 June, 1910, Captain Scott left London to begin his Antarctic expedition.
On his way, he received a telegram from the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen:
“I’m going South.” So the race to the South Pole was on!
Amundsen was the first to leave, on 15 October, 1911. He had teams of dogs
pulling the sledges and all his men were on skis. Because of this, he made rapid pro-
gress. Scott left on 1 November and soon had problems. First, his 2 motor sledges
broke down and then the ponies began to have serious difficulties with the snow and
the cold. After a while Scott and his men had to push the sledges themselves.
Amundsen reached the Pole on 14 December and put a Norwegian flag there.
Then he prepared for the return journey. Scott finally arrived at the Pole with four
companions on 17 January. They were devastated when they saw the Norwegian flag.
The return journey was one of the worst in the history of exploration. The men
were soon exhausted and were running out of food. The weather conditions were ter-
rible. Despite this, on their way back they found time to look for rocks and fossils.
They carried 20 kilos of rocks all the way with them. Later, these rocks proved that at
one time in the distant past Antarctica was covered by plants.
