Captain Carl Anton Larsen was an explorer, who found previously undiscovered lands and bodies of ice in the Weddell Sea region. He was a contributor to science, who made key discoveries and observations and later donated valuable scientific collections to a number of Norwegian and Swedish museums. He was a leader, who fought against the odds to keep his men alive when Antarctic sank, and then made a daring open-boat journey to save them. And he was a pioneer and a visionary.
