[6] Scott's early childhood years were spent in comfort, but some years later, when he was establishing his naval career, the family suffered serious financial misfortune. These ranged from simple relics—e.g. In Thomson's view, Scott was not a great man, "at least, not until near the end";[121] his planning is described as "haphazard" and "flawed",[122] his leadership characterised by lack of foresight. She was told on 19 February by the captain of the ship on which she was travelling. It was the opportunity for early command and a chance to distinguish himself, rather than any predilection for polar exploration which motivated Scott, according to Crane. But there were complications: Robert Scott, the 42-year-old who had already led one expedition to Antarctica from 1901 to 1904, was preparing to embark on a new voyage there. Robert "Bob" Scott (December 10, 1892 – November 22, 1947) was a Negro Leagues outfielder, playing mostly for the St. Louis Giants and the Brooklyn Royal Giants. However, during the 1911 winter Scott's confidence increased; on 2 August, after the return of a three-man party from their winter journey to Cape Crozier, Scott wrote, "I feel sure we are as near perfection as experience can direct".[76]. The chosen group marched on, reaching the Pole on 17 January, only to find a tent left in place by Amundsen, in it containing a letter dated 18 December.

I lay awake and in pain all night; woke and felt done on the march; foot went and I didn't know it. Atkinson therefore tried to send the experienced navigator Wright south to meet Scott, but chief meteorologist Simpson declared he needed Wright for scientific work. [44] It was therefore unwelcome news to him that Ernest Shackleton had announced his own plans to travel to Discovery's old McMurdo Sound base and launch a bid for the South Pole from there. [62] Snow vehicles did not yet exist however, and so his engineer Reginald Skelton developed the idea of a caterpillar track for snow surfaces. John Scott, having sold the brewery and invested the proceeds unwisely, had lost all his capital and was now virtually bankrupt. [66] Man-hauling would still be needed on the Polar Plateau, on the assumption that motors and animals could not ascend the crevassed Beardmore Glacier. [98][99][100], The bodies of Scott and his companions were discovered by a search party on 12 November 1912 and their records retrieved. However, in the last decades of the 20th century, questions were raised about his competence and character. Just under a year earlier, on 1 April 1912, the Terra Novahad arrived in New Zealand with news that the world had been waiting for - confirmation that Scott had not reached the Pole before Amundsen. [92], After walking 20 miles (32 km) farther despite Scott's toes now becoming frostbitten,[93] the three remaining men made their final camp on 19 March, approximately 12.5 miles (20 km) short of One Ton Depot.

[67], On 15 June 1910, Scott's ship, Terra Nova, an old converted whaler, set sail from Cardiff, South Wales. Scott outlined his plans for the southern journey to the entire shore party,[77] leaving open who would form the final polar team, according to their performance during the polar travel. [135] According to Barczewski, he goes some way towards an assessment of Scott "free from the baggage of earlier interpretations". In 1966, Reginald Pound, the first biographer given access to Scott's original sledging journal, revealed personal failings which cast a new light on Scott,[118] although Pound continued to endorse his heroism, writing of "a splendid sanity that would not be subdued".

On the second venture, Scott led a party of five which reached the South Poleon 17 January 1912, less than five weeks … It portrays the team spirit of the expedition and the harsh Antarctic environment, but also includes critical scenes such as Scott regarding his broken down motors and ruefully remembering Nansen's advice to take only dogs.

Deteriorating weather conditions and weak, unacclimatised ponies affected the initial depot-laying journey, so that the expedition's main supply point, One Ton Depot, was laid 35 miles (56 km) north of its planned location at 80°S. Among modern polar writers, Ranulph Fiennes regards Shackleton's actions as a technical breach of honour, but adds: "My personal belief is that Shackleton was basically honest but circumstances forced his McMurdo landing, much to his distress. Before his appointment to lead the Discovery expedition, Scott had followed the career of a naval officer in the Royal Navy. He acted in Brubaker (1980), Iron Eagle (1986), and The Karate Kid (1986). He was awarded a cluster of honours and medals, including many from overseas, and was promoted to the rank of captain. While stationed in St Kitts, West Indies, on HMS Rover, he had his first encounter with Clements Markham, then Secretary of the Royal Geographical Society, who would loom large in Scott's later career. [30] Some of the meteorological and magnetic readings, however, were later criticised as amateurish and inaccurate. It was expected that the vessel would return with Scott's party in March or April 1913. [5] John Scott's prosperity came from the ownership of a small Plymouth brewery which he had inherited from his father and subsequently sold. … Meares was not an experienced horse-dealer, and the ponies he chose proved mostly of poor quality, and ill-suited to prolonged Antarctic work.

But Amundsen had already made it … [75] Shortly afterwards, the death toll among the ponies increased to six, three drowning when sea-ice unexpectedly disintegrated, casting in doubt the possibility of reaching the pole at all.

Atkinson then decided to send the short-sighted Cherry-Garrard on 25 February, who was not able to navigate, only as far as One Ton depot (which is within sight of Mount Erebus), effectively cancelling Scott's orders for meeting him at latitude 82 or 82.30 on 1 March.
