Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic exploration. View looking aft as crew members furl the mainsail of the Terra Nova on 28 December 1910 as it moved through pack ice during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 landed at Cape Evans in January 1911. They spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Terra Nova and the ship's party of 32 carried out oceanographic research. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole. Photograph by Herbert George Ponting.
