[42] HMS Albemarle, a battleship commanded by Scott, collided with the battleship HMS Commonwealth on 11 February 1907, suffering minor bow damage.[43]. Deteriorating weather conditions and weak, unacclimatised ponies affected the initial depot-laying journey, so that the expedition's main supply point, One Ton Depot, was laid 35 miles (56 km) north of its planned location at 80°S.

[91] Scott wrote that Oates' last words were "I am just going outside and may be some time". It is a critical position. In a social media announcement posted on Twitter, December 18th, 2020, Dead Death has learned the passing of Tilley who was fatally shot and killed.

Atkinson therefore tried to send the experienced navigator Wright south to meet Scott, but chief meteorologist Simpson declared he needed Wright for scientific work. Scott outlined his plans for the southern journey to the entire shore party,[77] leaving open who would form the final polar team, according to their performance during the polar travel. Robert Falcon Scott (* 6. [63] In the middle of 1909 Scott realised that motors were unlikely to get him all the way to the Pole, and decided additionally to take horses (based on Shackleton's near success in attaining the Pole, using ponies),[64][65] and dogs and skis after consultation with Nansen during trials of the motors in Norway in March 1910.

On Saturday 5th December 2020 peacefully at Metlifecare. Atkinson then decided to send the short-sighted Cherry-Garrard on 25 February, who was not able to navigate, only as far as One Ton depot (which is within sight of Mount Erebus), effectively cancelling Scott's orders for meeting him at latitude 82 or 82.30 on 1 March. According to a letter written to Stanfords bookshop owner Edward Stanford, Scott seemed to take offence with a map that was published that had shown how far south Scott and Shackleton had travelled during the Discovery Expedition.
