Expedition targets Shackleton's lost ship

A scientific expedition in the Antarctic is set to depart its current location to go in search of Sir Ernest Shackleton's lost ship.

The team has been investigating the Larsen C Ice Shelf and the continent's biggest iceberg, known as A68.

And this puts it just a few hundred km from the last recorded position of the famous British explorer's vessel, the Endurance.

The polar steam-yacht was crushed in sea-ice and sank in November 1915.

There has been, with Kenneth Branagh, it was really good.

It's on Amazon Video, I'll have to check it.   Although the trailer made it seem like a TV movie.

Yeah, checking it was a two part TV drama, but quality.

Antarctic scientists seeking to locate the wreck of Sir Ernest Shackleton's lost ship, the Endurance, have arrived at the search site.

The team broke through thick pack ice on Sunday to reach the vessel's last known position in the Weddell Sea.

Search for Shackleton's lost Endurance ship called off

The attempt this week to find Sir Ernest Shackleton's missing ship, the Endurance, has ended - without success.

A UK-led expedition to the Weddell Sea sent a sub to the ocean floor to look for the sunken polar yacht, but this robot was itself lost in the process.

The team has now withdrawn from the area because of deteriorating weather and ice conditions.

Wow, that sucks.   They lost  the unmanned sub.   I assume they cost quite a bit.
