IMAGE DISTRIBUTED FOR LAND ROVER - In this photo released on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, Polar explorer and brand ambassador for Land Rover Ben Saunders pictured in Antarctica. 102 years ago today iconic British explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his team became the first Britons to reach the South Pole. They died on their return journey. Explorers Tarka L’Herpiniere and Saunders are setting out to retrace and make the first completion of Scott’s iconic 1910-12 Terra Nova route. They are following Scott’s original 1,800 mile (2900km) route from the coast to the South Pole and back - a journey that sits right at the limits of human capability. Their endeavour is to honour Scott and his men's remarkable display of human fortitude by completing the route as well as inspire others worldwide to challenge their own personal limits and realise their potential.
