      What's the name of the book out of which that beautifully drawn map comes from where you can see the route Scott's team took?

          «Robert Scott was a meticulous planner». Well, not quite meticulous enough.

                    No!!! The temperatures were not an anomaly, the temperatures were just temperatures that man can never predict. How dare technology think it can match the Almighty's unfathomable work.

                            If I am going to be the first person to reach the Coldest place on earth, I better be taking like 4 layers of bear skin jackets with me. "Died of Frostbite and Cold", that's some horrible planning right there

                              It’s amazing to me that no one thought to take advice or guidance from the inuit. Tho idk what they were doing at the time.... they may have been occupied with the cultural genocide.

                              But still.

                                  I readed the book, the norweigens said “the english dont know about snow, but we know” nowrwegeons were poor and the scotts team was rich like that is some serious shade from norwigens lol

                                  Sorry bad english im german

                                    Scott's plan included killing the horses? What pointless cruelty and waste.

                                      They killed them for food. Amundsen did the same with his dogs.

                                        love how the first image shown of amundsen is him wearing fur. amundsen spent years living with and learning from the inuits during a prior expedition in the north — using fur and eschewing the usual slops, was just one of the things that he learned from the inuits that greatly helped him in the race to the South Pole.

                                                    If you have a real interest in this, read "The Worst Journey in the World" by Apsley Cherry-Garrard. Amazing stuff. As for Scott's south pole party, Oates likely did them all in by slowing them down to a deadly degree. Oates was fully aware of his negative influence on their progress, and after camp was made one evening, during a deadly blizzard, simply announced "I am just going outside and may be some time". Maybe the most British statement of all time. No one stopped him.
                                                    The rest of the party was so beat down and low on supplies that they succumbed to fatigue and the weather within a few days of Oates death. Turns out they were only a few short miles from a supply cache that likely would have saved them.
