    Wreck of Captain Scott's ship discovered off Greenland

    Wreck of Captain Scott's ship discovered off Greenland - Telegraph
    The ship that took Captain Robert Falcon Scott on his ill-fated mission to the Antarctic 100 years ago has been discovered off the coast of Greenland.

    The SS Terra Nova, built in Dundee in 1884, was found by a research company, Schmidt Ocean Institute, when they were testing new equipment on one of their vessels.

    The discovery has amazed experts as the ship had lain on the sea bed under icy waters for 70 years.

    Captain Scott and his team sailed it from Cardiff to the Antarctic in their quest to be the first people to reach the South Pole a century ago.

    They disembarked in November 1911 for the 167-mile trek to the Pole and arrived in January 1912, only to find a Norwegian party led by Roald Amundsen had beaten them to it. Scott’s whole team died on the return trek.



    Asteroids are nature's way of asking "How's that space program going?"

    Some of the mapping technology that they have right now is really awesome. It's still a ridiculously huge ocean, but their ability to find wrecks has progressed exponentially in recent years. Very cool
