Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912), British explorer, after returning from the main depot-laying expedition (the Southern Journey) on 13 April 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by 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. This journey was one of several made to prepare for the final march south which started in November 1911. Scott died close to the main depot he had laid the previous year.
