To Strive, To Seek, To Find, and Not To Yield
Jan. 17, 2012
Title : To Strive, To Seek, To Find, and Not To Yield
Description : On this day 100 years ago (January 17, 1912), Robert F. Scott and his party became the second group of humans to reach a latitude of 90° South on the Earth,
having lost the race to the pole to Amundsen. Tragically, Captain Scott and his four companions died on the return journey.

On Mercury, the point of 90° South is located at about the 12 o'clock position on the lower inner wall of the large crater in the image above (crater Chao Meng-Fu).

Ernest Shackleton, another heroic explorer of Antarctica, wrote this in his diary in 1908: "It falls to the lot of few men to view land not previously seen by human eyes, and it was with feelings of keen curiosity, not unmingled with awe, that we watched the new mountains rise from the great unknown that lay ahead of us." Spacecraft such as MESSENGER continue the spirit of exploration exemplified by Amundsen, Scott, and Shackleton. It is with the same feelings of curiosity and awe that we view the new land revealed to us by robotic explorers sent forth into the great unknown.
