Endurance, Ernest Shackleton’s ship, FOUND!


Recommended Posts

"A team of adventurers, marine archaeologists and technicians located the wreck at the bottom of the Weddell Sea, east of the Antarctic Peninsula, using undersea drones. Battling sea ice and freezing temperatures, the team had been searching for more than two weeks in a 150-square-mile area around where the ship went down in 1915."

The ultimate Klondike Derby.  In hindsight,  plans could've been better, but A wonderful inspirational story.  Shackleton brought all his crew home.

“The preservation is beyond imagination,” Bound told NBC News by phone on Wednesday, adding that the ship’s name could still be seen emblazoned across the stern.

The crew’s survival is an incredible story.  After they left the ship they made it to an island with very little protection from the elements or food. Shackleton and another crew member took a dingy to St George’s Island, climbed over a mountain, and hiked to a port to get folks to go back and rescue the crew.
