The Lunar south pole is covered by craters, great walled plains and is very mountainous. The deep shadows make cartography and mapping very difficult. Some craters are permanently hidden behind other craters and mountain ranges.
AMUNDSEN - Roald E. A. Amundsen (1872 - 1928) Norwegian polar-explorer. He led the Antarctic expedition (1910-12), to become the first men to reach the South Pole in December 1911. In 1926, he was the first expedition leader to be recognized without dispute as having reached the North Pole. He is also known as the first to traverse the Northwest Passage (1903–06).
