Frustratingly for the team, it is not known whether the submersible captured images of the Endurance wreck.
W hile it failed to find the Endurance, the expedition did collect valuable information on the Larsen C Ice Shelf, which two years ago calved a huge iceberg known as A68, which is four times the size of Greater London. That research will contribute to the understanding of how the continent is being affected by climate change.
T hey were members of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, the objective of which was to make the first land crossing of the Antarctic continent. But after the three-masted Endurance became trapped in ice, eventually being crushed to bits after 10 months, Shackleton and his man crew made their way north in lifeboats, sailing over stretches of water and dragging them over ice floes. They reached Elephant Island, at the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, where Shackleton left the bulk of the crew. Time: allow 45 minutes to complete this activity Curriculum Links: Visual Art.
