内容简介:当今,南极有一座房子,叫阿蒙森—斯科特南极站。室内暖融融的,无论夏冬,人们都可以在那儿生活、工作。飞机毫不费力地便能飞抵或是飞离南极站。从这儿到世界其它地方,要不了多少小时。但是从南极站出来走上500米,那儿的南极洲便再次成为地球上最寒冷、最空旷的地区。

在1911年,当时的南极既没见过飞机也没建有住房。除了茫茫大雪、冰封天地与凛凛寒风外,一无所有。没有英国国旗,没有挪威国旗。但是,有几个人缓慢地向南走着,横穿冰封大地。斯科特率领的人配备了小马,而阿蒙森率领的人配备了狗与滑雪板。当时的温度为-30℃或者更糟。这些人忍受着疲倦、饥饿和寒冷……他们中谁将是到达南极的第一人呢?

目前,在阿蒙森—斯科特南极站内,墙上写着一些字,是斯科特队长于1912年写在日记里的一句话:“天。?獾胤教?膳铝耍?rdquo;
