100 years later

‎100 years ago today Sir Robert Scott penned his last journal entry and died, alone, somewhere on the polar plateau. Tonight, 100 years later, myself and 20 other people honor his memory with a climb up ob hill to visit his memorial cross and have a moment of silence. The cross reads: "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

A few scott inspired videos:

A music video for the song Terra Nova by the British band Iliketrains:

A drunk history of the South Pole. This was created at McMurdo this past summer season and though it is 17 minutes long it is pretty hilarious.
