(Robert Falcon Scott, een Brits ontdekkingsreiziger is beroemd geworden met zijn tochten naar Antarctica. Zijn tweede Zuidpoolexpeditie met de Terra Nova heeft het doel wetenschappelijke waarnemingen te verrichten en te trachten de geografische zuidpool te bereiken. Als Scott met een aantal leden van de expeditie op 17 januari 1912 dit doel bereikt blijkt dat Roald Amundsen hun een maand voor is geweest. Op de terugweg komen zij alle vijf door ongunstige weersomstandigheden en gebrekkige voeding om. Op 29 maart 1912 schrijft hij zijn laatste woorden: “In Gods naam, denk aan onze nabestaanden.” Tot aan aan zijn dood hield Scott een dagboek bij dat later naast hem werd gevonden. Drie lichamen en alle dagboeken aantekeningen en instrumenten worden op 12 november 1912 teruggevonden. Scott krijgt vooral door het meesterlijke dagboek van zijn laatste tocht, zijn afscheidsbrieven en zijn boodschap voor het publiek grote bekendheid.)

(Op 10 april 1912 verlaat het Britse passagiersschip de RMS Titanic de haven van Southampton, Engeland, met als bestemming New York City. Op 14 april 1912 om 23:40 uur komt dit 270 meter lange schip in de Atlantische Oceaan, 640 kilometer ten zuiden van Newfoundland in aanvaring met een ijsberg. De marconist is wel zes keer gewaarschuwd voor een ijsberg. Hij heeft “geen tijd” om hierop te reageren. Hij heeft het “te druk” met het verzenden van telegrammen voor passagiers. Er zijn onvoldoende reddingsmiddelen aan boord, daar het schip door een waterdichte indeling onzinkbaar geacht werd. Binnen drie uur zinkt het schip. Om 2:10 uur helt de Titanic zover naar voren dat de schroef zichtbaar wordt. De twee overgebleven reddingsboten schuiven van het dek en drijven weg en de voorste schoorsteen breekt af, waarbij een deel van de brug vernield wordt. Om 2:15 uur valt de elektriciteit uit. Spoedig daarna breekt de Titanic in tweeën tussen de twee achterste schoorstenen, waarna de boeg onmiddellijk naar de diepte verdwijnt. De achtersteven zinkt kort erna. Van de 2206 opvarenden vinden er 1503 de dood, een aantal dat bij een scheepsramp in vredestijd nooit werd overtroffen. De Titanic werd in opdracht van de White Star Line gebouwd op de scheepswerf van Harland en Wolff in Belfast. De White Star Line wilde met het schip concurreren met Cunard Line Lusitania en Mauretania. De Titanic en haar zusterschepen, de Olympic en de Britannic moesten de grootste en meest luxueuze passagiersschepen worden die de wereld ooit had gezien. De bouw van de Titanic begon op 31 maart 1909. De romp van het schip werd in 1911 te water gelaten en een jaar later was het schip klaar voor haar eerste reis. Het schip was 269 meter lang en 28 meter breed en woog 53.147 ton. Het wrak van de Titanic wordt pas in 1985 gesignaleerd.)
