Some wording on Scott[edit]

re:

"the first to stand at this spot since CAPT Robert Falcon Scott of the British Royal Navy reached it in January 1912."

Many people believe Scott was the first to reach the south pole, and the wording here, "since Scott reached it", could enforce that perception. Of course it was Roald Amundsen who reached it first, in December 1911. I modified the wording some that hopefully will be acceptable, to emphasize the time scale, 44 years, when anyone was there last, the main idea. Green Cardamom (talk) 06:18, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
