|About the Shackleton Voyage|
|Under Shackleton’s leadership an expedition ship Endurance planned to cross Antarctica from Weddell Sea to McMurdo Sound. It was trapped in ice off the Caird coast and drifted for 10 months before being crushed in the ice. The members of the expedition then drifted on ice floes for another five months and finally escaped in boats to Elephant Island in the South Shetland Islands. Britannica, The Editors of Encyclopaedia. “Ernest Shackleton”. Encyclopedia Britannica, Invalid Date, https://www.britannica.com/biography/Ernest-Henry-Shackleton. Accessed 15 March 2022.||The wreck of HMS Endurance, which has finally been
located deep beneath the icy seas of Antarctica after being lost 107 years ago, was arguably the most valuable shipwreck ever sought. That’s because its discovery adds another thrilling new chapter to an already gripping tale of perseverance and survival that has echoed down the decades and still inspires today. NYT 3/9/22
A version of this article appears in print on March 9, 2022, Section A, Page 5 of the New York edition with the headline: 106 Years Later, Wreckage of Lost Ship Is Found in Antarctic Waters.
