Anyone logging onto Google today will be met with a neat ‘doodle’ (see below) commemorating the first expedition to reach the Geographic South Pole exactly 105 years to the day.  105th-anniversary-of-first-expedition-to-reach-the-south-pole-5150098246860800-hp

As is well known the first team to reach the pole were Norwegian and were led by the wily Roald Amundsen. To celebrate this day I’ve made an infographic of some key facts on the man himself. Happy Reading.
