HMS Endurance of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton has been located south of the Falkland Islands, more than a century after it sank off the coast of Antarctica. The Falklands History Hit, a multimedia platform co-founded by historian Dan Snow, and the Maritime Heritage Trust worked together on the discovery. A team of scientists, historians, and filmmakers were on board to create a video for an upcoming documentary about the Endurance search. In 1914, the Endurance set sail from the United Kingdom for Antarctica, arriving in McMurdo Sound the following year. But due to the terrible weather, the ship became trapped in thick, unbreakable ice in the Weddell Sea and sank 3,008 meters below the surface. Shackleton and the other 28 men on board abandoned the ship and built basic camp facilities on ice floes heading northward. Despite the expedition’s failure, the team’s survival and rescue months later, with no casualties, was praised as a success of their bravery and Shackleton’s great leadership qualities.
