Caption: Terra Nova Antarctic laboratory. British Royal Navy surgeon Edward Atkinson (1881-1929) in the expedition laboratory on 15 September 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 34 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Atkinson's parasitology research during the expedition identified a new intestinal tapeworm in the Adelie penguin. Photographed by Herbert George Ponting.
