Worst Journey in the World

This evening I shall join a virtual journey to Ross Island at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, following in the footsteps of Edward Wilson and Robert Falcon Scott on the Terra Nova expedition of 1910-1913.

This is just one of numerous events taking place across the world to celebrate the centenary of the British Antarctic (Terra Nova) expedition - see the calendar of events at http://www.scott100.org/

To view some spectacular photographs of the Antarctic, historic and modern, look no further than SPRI's picture library.  This includes their Freeze Frame project, which includes photographs from the original Terra Nova expedition, which can be viewed as a slideshow, and an 'image of the day'. Alternatively, you can search SPRI's picture library by expedition - and view pages of images from the Terra Nova expedition.
