Shackleton’s Man Goes South

This exhibition ended on 25 April 2015

‘Shackleton’s Man Goes South’ is a novel by Tony White about climate change.

White was inspired to write his novel after discovering a little-known science fiction story that appeared in the ‘South Polar Times’, the shipboard newspaper on Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated 1911 Antarctic expedition. This thought-provoking story was written by polar explorer and meteorologist George Clarke Simpson, who went on to become a leading atmospheric scientist and director of the Met Office.
