Few scientific explorations have captured the public’s imagination like Robert Falcon Scott’s expedition to Antarctica from 1910 to 1913. He and a team of scientists withstood incredible hardships and perished before reaching home, but not before they had discovered a large number of zoological and geological specimens that greatly furthered scientific knowledge of the vast region. These included 2,109 different species of animals and plants from land and water, more than 400 of them new to science. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of their accomplishment, the Natural History Museum (Cromwell Road www.nhm.ac.uk/scott) will hold the exhibition “Scott’s Last Expedition” from Friday through Sept. 2.
