Farewell to Civilisation: Captain Robert Falcon Scott and His Team Bid Adieu to New Zealand Aboard the Terra Nova, En Route to Antarctica (1911) In this evocative image from the early 20th century, we witness the poignant moment as Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his intrepid team, determined to be the first humans to reach the South Pole, bid farewell to civilisation from the deck of their ship, Terra Nova, as it sets sail from Lyttelton Harbour, New Zealand. The date is December 1910. The Terra Nova, a sturdy and well-equipped vessel, would carry Scott and his brave band of explorers on their perilous journey into the uncharted and inhospitable territory of Antarctica. However, fate had other plans. The Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen would beat them to the Pole, reaching it on December 14, 1911, more than a month before Scott and his team arrived. Tragically, Scott and four of his companions perished on their return journey, succumbing to the harsh Antarctic conditions. This photograph, which graces the front cover of The Sphere, captures the spirit of adventure, courage, and determination that defined Scott's ill-fated expedition. The image serves as a poignant reminder of the human capacity for exploration and the indomitable will to push the boundaries of the known world. The Terra Nova, with its resolute crew, departs New Zealand, leaving behind the comforts and certainties of civilisation, embarking on a mission that would ultimately end in tragedy. This powerful image, taken in 1911, stands as a testament to the indomitable human spirit and the allure of the unknown that continues to inspire generations.
