Century-old photo negatives found in Antarctic explorer's hut

While a Russian-flagged vessel remains stuck in Antarctic ice, recently discovered photo negatives remind us this cold continent has been stopping explorers in their tracks for a century.

New Zealand’s Antarctic Heritage Trust found the negatives in an expedition hut from Capt. Robert Falcon Scott’s failed 1912 quest to become the first man to reach the South Pole.

The photos were taken during Ernest Shackleton’s 1914-1917 Ross Sea Party, another failed exploration whose members were forced to live in Scott’s hut after their ship blew out to sea.

The cellulose nitrate negatives were found clumped together in a small box in the darkroom of Herbert Ponting, Scott’s expedition photographer, the trust said. The trust took the negatives to New Zealand, where they were separated to reveal 22 images.

Many images were damaged, but the trust says it was able to recognize landmarks around McMurdo Sound. It’s unknown who took the photos.

Scott was a British explorer who became famous during what historians call the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. He arrived at the South Pole in January 1912 to discover his rival, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, had beaten him to the spot by an estimated 33 days.

Scott and several comrades died in March 1912 during the return journey.

Several years later, Shackleton attempted the first land crossing of Antarctica from the Weddell Sea to the Ross Sea via the South Pole, according to the Museum Victoria website.

Ten members of the group were stranded when their ship, the Aurora, blew out to sea and they were forced to live in Scott’s hut. Three men died before they were rescued in 1916.

Nigel Watson, Antarctic Heritage Trust’s executive director, said the new photos are a historic treasure.

“It’s an exciting find and we are delighted to see them exposed after a century,” Watson said.

    Keith is my all time favorite boy name. Falcon I love for a couple reasons: I love nature names, I love unique names, also it was the middle name of Robert Falcon Scott, an antarctic explorer – I love exploring and adventures, and really admire his courage and bravery. I think Keith Robert or Keith Scott sound boring, so please don’t suggest those.

    But do you think it sounds OK? I don’t think he’d be teased, especially since Falcon is the middle name. What do you think?

  51. ?
    *Amundsen was Norwegian. Knew what to wear and knew how to travel
    Scott was ill equipped

  52. I got this from wikipedia. Can you please explain these to me?

    Predictions such as the following have appeared in various Watchtower publications:

    1907: Jesus will take his throne in Heaven in the year 1914.
    1917: In 1918, God would begin to destroy churches “wholesale” and church members by the millions.
    1922-1923: The resurrection of the dead would occur in 1925. In preparation for the 1925 date, the Watchtower Society acquired a property in California and built a mansion they called Beth Sarim. The property was to house people such as Abraham, Moses, David, and Samuel, whom they thought would be resurrected to life in 1925. When they failed to resurect, their leader, Joseph Rutherford moved in.
    1938: In 1938, Armaggedon was too close for marriage or child bearing.
    1941: There were only “months” remaining until Armageddon
    1942: Armageddon was “immediately before us.”
    1969: Human existence would not last long enough for young people to grow old; the world system would end “in a few years”. Young Witnesses were encouraged not to bother pursuing tertiary education for this reason.
    1969: Christ’s thousand-year reign would begin in 1975. There was a considerable amount of related speculation in Watchtower publications in the years leading up to 1975.
    1984: There were “many indications” that “the end” was closer than the end of the 20th century.
    1914 (generation): It was taught that Armageddon would take place before the death of those who were alive in 1914. This teaching was abandoned in 1996. Jehovah’s Witnesses currently believe that no certain year can be established for Armageddon to occur.

  53. From a historical impact point of view, who would you consider to be the greatest voyager or explorer of all time and why? I think even if the expedition failed, they could still be very important – such as Scott of Antarctica, but perhaps in the grand scheme of things, he was eclipsed by others who took on challenges to explore and really changed the course of history. Do you think Neil Armstrong should be listed among the greatest explorers?

  80. I got this from wikipedia. Can you please explain these to me?

    Predictions such as the following have appeared in various Watchtower publications:

    1907: Jesus will take his throne in Heaven in the year 1914.
    1917: In 1918, God would begin to destroy churches “wholesale” and church members by the millions.
    1922-1923: The resurrection of the dead would occur in 1925. In preparation for the 1925 date, the Watchtower Society acquired a property in California and built a mansion they called Beth Sarim. The property was to house people such as Abraham, Moses, David, and Samuel, whom they thought would be resurrected to life in 1925. When they failed to resurect, their leader, Joseph Rutherford moved in.
    1938: In 1938, Armaggedon was too close for marriage or child bearing.
    1941: There were only “months” remaining until Armageddon
    1942: Armageddon was “immediately before us.”
    1969: Human existence would not last long enough for young people to grow old; the world system would end “in a few years”. Young Witnesses were encouraged not to bother pursuing tertiary education for this reason.
    1969: Christ’s thousand-year reign would begin in 1975. There was a considerable amount of related speculation in Watchtower publications in the years leading up to 1975.
    1984: There were “many indications” that “the end” was closer than the end of the 20th century.
    1914 (generation): It was taught that Armageddon would take place before the death of those who were alive in 1914. This teaching was abandoned in 1996. Jehovah’s Witnesses currently believe that no certain year can be established for Armageddon to occur.

  81. I have a VCE sac paper to write Tuesday, quite a long one, but I’m finding the question very difficult to research. I would be really grateful for somebody to shove me in the right direction =D

    To what extent was Lenin involved in shaping ant-government parties, how did he face the struggles of 1914-1917, and how did he influence the course of the revolution up until the end of 1917?

  82. I’ve been reading around on the internet and many sites have suggested that frozen vegetables have just as much, if not a little less, nutrients than their fresh counterparts. If this is the case, then why did the sailors trying to find the northern passage in the past contact scurvy even though they had lemons that were frozen with them?

  83. I am really confused about this question on my homework:
    “Describe the troubles between the United States and Mexico between 1914-1917”
    Is it because the Americans got involved with the Mexican Revolution or what? Thanks! No hate please because that’s annoying and I’m not cheating, I’m just trying to understand this alittle more.

    He had dogs but didnt trust them or know how to use them unlike the Norwegian (Clue) Amundsen who was used to Arctic conditions, wore sealskin furs and used dog sleds.

    Scott had his “idee fixe” which was man-hauling (to me, he had an unteachable spirit)

  105. This programme was made by Martin Durkin. He says himself on the website Prison Planet he wanted to call it ‘Apocalypse my arse’, but he thought the title he chose would be ‘better for ratings’. This is the same man who in 1997 made a series called ‘Against Nature’, in which he blamed envioronmentalists for the deprivation and deaths of millions in the Third World. Channel 4 had to broadcast a prime-time apology and the Independent Television Commission chastisied Durkin for using ‘underhanded editing techniques, distorting and misrepresenting the known views of those interviewed and for misleading those who took part as to the format, subject matter and purpose of these programmes’. He went on to make a programme where GM proponants like CS Prakash played a starring role. (see Getting your science from charlatans). Whilst I’ll always defend free speech, you have to be aware of this kind of agenda and manipulitive method. Did he swindle you into believing him?
    It has since emerged that the Professor of oceanography from MIT, Professor Carl Wunsch, claims that he has been misprepresented in the programme and is considering making an offical complaint.

    It has also been revealed that the programme makers used old data. They could have gone to the Nasa website and got the most up-to-date data, but it would have undermined their argument. They also ‘adapted’ data. ‘The original Nasa data was very wiggly-lined and we wanted the simplest line we could find.’ Mr Durkin has said in his defence.

    Looks like he’s been up to his old tricks.

    It is true that sunspot activity can affect temperatures here on earth, but up-to- date data shows that in the last 30 years temperatures have risen while sunspot activity has not, a fact disguised in the film.

  131. From a historical impact point of view, who would you consider to be the greatest voyager or explorer of all time and why? I think even if the expedition failed, they could still be very important – such as Scott of Antarctica, but perhaps in the grand scheme of things, he was eclipsed by others who took on challenges to explore and really changed the course of history. Do you think Neil Armstrong should be listed among the greatest explorers?

  209. This programme was made by Martin Durkin. He says himself on the website Prison Planet he wanted to call it ‘Apocalypse my arse’, but he thought the title he chose would be ‘better for ratings’. This is the same man who in 1997 made a series called ‘Against Nature’, in which he blamed envioronmentalists for the deprivation and deaths of millions in the Third World. Channel 4 had to broadcast a prime-time apology and the Independent Television Commission chastisied Durkin for using ‘underhanded editing techniques, distorting and misrepresenting the known views of those interviewed and for misleading those who took part as to the format, subject matter and purpose of these programmes’. He went on to make a programme where GM proponants like CS Prakash played a starring role. (see Getting your science from charlatans). Whilst I’ll always defend free speech, you have to be aware of this kind of agenda and manipulitive method. Did he swindle you into believing him?
    It has since emerged that the Professor of oceanography from MIT, Professor Carl Wunsch, claims that he has been misprepresented in the programme and is considering making an offical complaint.

    It has also been revealed that the programme makers used old data. They could have gone to the Nasa website and got the most up-to-date data, but it would have undermined their argument. They also ‘adapted’ data. ‘The original Nasa data was very wiggly-lined and we wanted the simplest line we could find.’ Mr Durkin has said in his defence.

    Looks like he’s been up to his old tricks.

    It is true that sunspot activity can affect temperatures here on earth, but up-to- date data shows that in the last 30 years temperatures have risen while sunspot activity has not, a fact disguised in the film.
