Scott led two expeditions to the Antarctic, the Discovery Expedition (1901-1904) and the Terra Nova Expedition (1910-1913). During the Terra Nova Expedition, Scott and his team reached the South Pole only to find that Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen had beat them there by a month. On the return journey, Scott and his team died from a combination of starvation, exhaustion, and extreme cold. Their deaths made them heroes in Britain, and their story became one of the most famous and tragic episodes in the history of Antarctic exploration.
