Borchgrevink recruited Sir George Newnes, the publisher, as a sponsor for this expedition, on board the Southern Cross. His plan was to ‘make deep sea and inshore soundings, collect natural history specimens, make pendulum observations, take meteorological data and attempt to reach Magnetic Pole and South Pole. Borchgrevink had been denigrated by Sir Clements Markham for, as Markham perceived, having usurped funds and priority from the British National Antarctic Expedition. View more info
