Robert Falcon Scott, Lawrence Oates, Edgar Evans and Edward Wilson travelled to Antarctica because they wanted to be the first people to the South Pole. Unfortunately, when they reach the pole, they find that they had been beaten by Roald Amundsen. Too depressed by the loss, the four men all die on the return trip. Three of the men died in their tent and the other one commited siucide. They died because they ran out of food and fuel.
