It is believed that another explorer was also on the expedition to reach the south pole. Amundsen could make it just five weeks ahead of a British party led by Robert Falcon Scott . Amundsen and his team returned safely to their base, and later learned that Scott and his four companions had died on their return journey.

1911 में आज नॉर्वे के खोजी यात्री Roald Amundsen अपने दल के साथ धरती के दक्षिणी ध्रुव यानी South Pole पहुंचने वाले पहले व्यक्ति बन गए थे। ये घटना इंसान की अदभुत क्षमता का प्रतीक है। खास बात ये है कि Amundsen (अमंडसन) धरती के दोनों ध्रुवों पर पहुंचने वाले पहले व्यक्ति थे।
