Caption: Antarctic meteorology research. British zoologist Edward Wilson (1872-1912) watching a meteorological recorder receiving the first sunlight of the season on 26 August 1911 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 7 officers, 12 scientists and 15 crewmen landed at Cape Evans in January 1911. They spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott, Wilson and three others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Photograph by Herbert George Ponting.
