The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition, was an expedition to Antarctica which took place between 1910 and 1913. It was led by Robert Falcon Scott and had various scientific and geographical objectives. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901?04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. He and four companions attained the pole on 17 January 1912, where they found that the Norwegian team led by Roald Amundsen had preceded them by 34 days. Scott's entire party died on the return journey from the pole; some of their bodies, journals, and photographs were found by a search party eight months later.

The expedition, named after its supply ship, was a private venture, financed by public contributions augmented by a government grant. It had further backing from the Admiralty, which released experienced seamen to the expedition, and from the Royal Geographical Society. The expedition's team of scientists carried out a comprehensive scientific programme, while other parties explored Victoria Land and the Western Mountains. An attempted landing and exploration of King Edward VII Land was unsuccessful. A journey to Cape Crozier in June and July 1911 was the first extended sledging journey in the depths of the Antarctic winter.

For many years after his death, Scott's status as tragic hero was unchallenged, and few questions were asked about the causes of the disaster which overcame his polar party. In the final quarter of the 20th century the expedition came under closer scrutiny, and more critical views were expressed about its organization and management. The degree of Scott's personal culpability, and more recently, the culpability of certain expedition members, remain controversial.

Of course now we have 20/20 hindsight in the conspiracy realm. Were they sabotaged or prevented from returning? Could they have seen something not fit for the heliocentric model of existence? The approaching rescuers didn't experience the same weather as the approaching explorers it said. Regardless I can't imagine below 40 exposure. I've been outdoors in below 35 with adequate shelter. That was cold enough. I've slept outdoors in below 23. That was wicked. It is hard to stop shivering. If they made a big mistake they neglected bundling - sleeping in pairs to maintain body heat. That was an old survival technique. In light of the South Pole Google Doodle and the interest of the elites to visit or send representatives we review some of the history. The flat earth model illustrates the Antarctic as a barrier to Eden. It is off limits for that reason. You will see the bottom is flat and we are under a dome. It offers protection and retains the atmosphere which would be sucked away by the vacuum of 'space.'

The blag flag provides interest. It is a pirate's flag, it was Mohammed's, it was used by post war German U-Boats. Some of those were said to go to Antarctica where the German's had a secret base. Still further the black flag was used by the evil overlord Morgoth in the inner earth writings of J. R. Tolkein.
