In the Cause of Science (Captain Scott)

Amazing Scott illustration Feb 1913

This graphic cartoon image was published in British newspapers 102 years ago this week.

The news of the deaths of Captain Scott and his four companions had finally reached home.

They had been dead since the previous March.

Today, their bodies remain encased in ice, an estimated thirty miles from where they died. Their ice tomb is slowly moving away from the South Pole which had held their dream of glory.
