This image made available by the Scott Polar Research Institute on Monday March 31, 2014 shows a camp under the Wild Mountains, Beardmore Glacier, in Antarctica Dec. 20, 1911 . Cambridge University says it has raised 275,000 pounds ($458,000) to buy rare photographic negatives from Capt. Robert Falcon Scott's ill-fated Antarctic expedition. Scott, an icon of the heroic age of polar exploration, reached the South Pole in January 1912, only to discover that he'd been beaten by Norway's Roald Amundsen. Scott and four companions died of hunger and exhaustion on the trek back to base camp. Their stoicism in the face of doom turned them into national heroes.
