    Default Robert Falcon Scott TERRA NOVA PHOTOS

    Hey guys, I wanted to share these photos for Big Ned to see, but also for everyone else who may enjoy. My Fathers been going down to Antarctica for the past 2 winters and is going again in a few weeks for a 3rd season. He previously had worked at Byrd Surface Camp as a equipment operator and scientist assistant. Last season while out with the research group they gained permission and access to Robert Falcon Scott's Terra Nova Hut at Cape Evans. The Hut itself is a time capsule once you step inside. Tools, bedding, scientist equipment, food, dishes, horse stables, horse manure, furniture, everything is left in its original state due to the extreme cold temperatures keeping organism from decomposing anything. The Penguin laying on the table for studies is frozen in time. It was really amazing looking threw these pictures for myself, so i hope some on here may enjoy them as well. I am not as informed on Scott's Military History so feel free to add any bits of info you guys may have.

    Hi Garrett,

    Thanks for putting these photo's up, they are truly superb! I have a longtime interest in this subject and others of bravery and derring do, often against hopeless odds. The images are nice because they show details often not seen, the penguin being an example...Brilliant!!

    Many thanks, and all the best to your old man! Ned.

    Hey Ned, glad you enjoyed them, these were just a few of the pics he had taken, Ill go threw the rest and see if there's any more other interesting photos with good detail. I like the penguin pic as well, and the LONDON NEWS sitting right beside it on the table at the same time. Thanks for the comment he heads out in about 10 days now for the season. Saskatchewan Canada -> Denver Co. -> Christchurch New Zealand and then the C-17 compliments of US Air Force to Mcmurdo Antarctica headquarters, gear up and off to the research camp.

    I never knew this existed but what a piece of true history, your Dad must be very priviledged to be able to step back in time like this

    He loves this kind of history, and after entering it he found out its not very common to gain access to the inside of the building, its preserved there just the way it was as an unwritten sort of monumental museum, but certain scientists and people are allowed to get one of the keys to access it. New Zealand has volunteered I believe he said to maintain its security and well being.
