'Every day some new fact comes to light - some new obstacle which threatens the gravest obstruction. I suppose this is the reason which makes the game so well worth playing.' (Robert Falcon Scott)
2012 marks the centenary of Captain Robert Falcon Scott's team from the British Antarctic (Terra Nova) Expedition reaching the South Pole. This weekend I am at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge to meet some of the polar scientists of today. Really looking forward to what they have to say and seeing some of the exhibits from Scott's expeditions.
