Caption: Laboratory research in Antarctica. British biologist Edward W. Nelson (1883-1923) using a microscope while carrying out research in the base camp laboratory on 30 March 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 (including Nelson) spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf.
