There Scott learned that the Norwegian explorer, Roald Amundsen, had already left for the Pole. So Scott’s chance to reach the South Pole before R. Amundsen was poor
There Scott learned that the Norwegian explorer, Roald Amundsen, had already left for the Pole. Amundsen was poor. Equipped with motor tractors, ponies and dogs, Scott and 11 members of his team set off for the Pole on 24 October, 1911. Very soon, six members of the team were sent back. The five explorers continued their dangerous journey across the snowy desert.

Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott, the race to be the first to reach the South Pole - The heroic age of Antarctic exploration. Background to the South Pole attempt: Amundsen was given the ship Fram by Fritjof Nansen to attempt to drift across the North Pole, he paid for supplies and wages by asking others for financial backing. Calculations had been made by Scott, but he was not aware of the greater need for food while manhauling at the altitude of the Polar Plateau and so underestimated how much was needed.

In 1909, the South Pole was the last of the great geographical challenges. Scott was not in a hurry. A fierce battle for its control was expected between the US and the British Empire. However, the leading American Polar explorers Cook and Peary at the time focused on reaching the Arctic. After hearing about the conquest of the North Pole, Roald Amundsen, from Norway, decided to change routes, and secretly drove his ship, Fram, toward Antarctica. As early as in February 1911, he hosted British officers in a camp on the Ross Ice Shelf.
Scott and his exploration ship Terra Nova Although Amundsen’s Norwegian team used dogs exclusively, Scott’s team relied on ponies to do much of the hauling, which were ill-suited to work.
Scott and his exploration ship Terra Nova. This is the story of the South Pole march of the British. Great God! This is an awful place, and terrible enough for us to have laboured to it without the reward of priority. Scott had been beaten, and now faced an 800-mile trek back to base camp. With 150 miles to go, Scott and his companions were caught in a blizzard and perished. Although Amundsen’s Norwegian team used dogs exclusively, Scott’s team relied on ponies to do much of the hauling, which were ill-suited to work on snow and ice without snow-shoes. A team of 11 dogs would sometimes pull a load of 1,000 lbs a distance of 15 miles in four hours.
