Photos from Exploration of Antartica Resurface and are Published Nearly a Century Later

It is fascinating to think that photos of  Robert Falcon Scott, an explorer of Antartica, who died during his expedition nearly a century ago, have resurfaced and are being published in a book, The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott. He arrived 33 days too late to be the first to reach the South Pole and on top of that, horrible weather conditions kept him from completing his return trip.
