South Pole

The South Pole is the farthest level south on Earth. It lies close to the center of the Antarctic continent in a excessive, windy space of ice and snow. It is among the world’s coldest locations. This pole is also referred to as the south geographic pole. On a globe or map, all strains of longitude meet there.

In 1911, two teams of explorers raced throughout Antarctica to succeed in the South Pole. One group was led by Roald Amundsen of Norway. The opposite was led by Robert Scott of Britain. Amundsen reached the pole on Dec. 14, 1911, about 5 weeks earlier than Scott. Scott and the 4 different members of his group who reached the pole died on the return journey.
