A century after Shackleton’s final expedition returned to port, join historian of science Dr Sam Robinson to hear how the expedition marked a key transition from the age of heroic exploration in Antarctica to the beginnings of sustained scientific enquiry. The Shackleton-Rowett expedition, also known as the ‘Quest’ expedition after the name of the ship, paved the way for today’s Antarctic research.
