Finding Shackleton's Lost Ship

In the early 1900s, many explorers planned and executed expeditions to find unexplored parts of the globe. From the Arctic or Antarctic Seas to the deepest jungles of Central and South America. One expedition that made the history books and legends was the one of the Antarctic by Ernest Shackleton. His ship, Endurance, went down and was lost in the Weddell Sea in 1915. He and his men hiked out across the snow and ice on the continent after their ship was lost. They have not been able to find the lost ship though they are trying. The story of this effort is found in National Geographic here.
