Caption: Terra Nova in Antarctic gale. View of sailors on the deck of the sailing ship Terra Nova in a gale in March 1912 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). 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, the shore party of 33 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 attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Photograph by Herbert George Ponting.
