Name Notes: Named in 1913 after Captain Scott, the leader of the ill fated South Pole expedition of 1912. Scott reached the south pole in 1912 only to see the dog tracks of Roald Amundsen who had gotten there earlier the same year. Scott and his party of five ran out of food and died in their tents on the return march, only 15 km from a major food cache.)
