One hundred years ago this summer, a great race began. In 1910, British explorer Robert Scott and Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen each set sail for the frozen continent of Antarctica. Their goal? To become the first person to reach the South Pole and plant his country's flag there.

Race to the End of the Earth, a new exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, brings the explorers' journeys alive. Ross MacPhee, curator of the exhibition, talked with Science World about how each man prepared for the race to the pole---and how the seemingly smallest of choices made a big difference in who made it back home alive.
