Caption: Terra Nova in Antarctic pack ice. Terra Nova trapped in Antarctic pack ice on 13 December 1910 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Trapped for 20 days in the pack ice from 10-30 December 1910, the Terra Nova arrived in Antarctica on 4 January 1911. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition after the ship that supplied and brought the explorers to Antarctica, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole. Photographed by Herbert George Ponting.
