An Expedition 100+ Years In The Making

The expedition crew was completely alone with no help on its way. Amazingly, everyone survived. How they survived is another amazing story. Every expedition member made it home safely by demonstrating remarkable courage, resourcefulness, and yes, endurance! Ernest Shackleton became a household name, and this incredible story of survival in one the harshest places imaginable has captured the imagination of people around the world ever since.

Fast-forward 107 years to today. Where does the Endurance22 expedition fit into the story? Shackleton and his crew have long-since passed away. Shackleton is buried near a former whaling station on South Georgia Island. The legend of his famous ship, however, has only grown bigger. Many people say it’s the most famous, yet-to-be-discovered shipwreck in the world!

The Endurance22 expedition is planning to journey from South Africa to the very site where Endurance sank in the Weddell Sea in 1915. Using modern marine robots, the expedition crew intends to locate, document and map the wreck site far beneath the ice. If successful, the expedition will write the final chapter of this incredible story.

More than a century after Shackleton, members of the Endurance22 expedition are following in his footsteps to one of the coldest, harshest places on the planet to learn more about this mysterious place.
