The Race to the South Pole
Almost one hundred years ago, two teams of explorers set off on dueling quests to be the first to reach the South Pole. One team returned victorious without losing a single man, while the other team perished. We’ll take a look at a new museum exhibition that looks at the histories of explorers Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott.
Featured guest is Will Steger Foundation’s Baffin Island Expedition basecamp manager, John Huston.
