The Terra Nova Expedition (1910-12), officially the British Antarctic Expedition 1910, was led by Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) with the aim of being the first to reach the South Pole, a tragic journey that ended on 29th March, 1912. In addition to the polar attempt, the expedition carried out a comprehensive scientific programme and the Terra Nova was fully fitted out for scientific research in polar regions. The scientific crew included meteorologists, hydrologists, zoologists, glacialogists, biologists and geologists. The programme is under development.
