2012 marks the centenary of Captain Robert Falcon Scott's last expedition to Antarctica: Scott and his men reached the South Pole on 17 January 1912, only to discover that Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen had beaten them to the prize. Scott and his party perished on the return route. Recently, studies of Scott's expedition and other explorations of the "Heroic Age" have re-emphasized the scientific contributions made by these pioneers.
