On the trail of the Endurance
The Endurance was trapped in the ice leaving Shackleton and his entire crew stranded, for 10 months he was trapped there; The ship was subject to the constant pressure of the ice, holding for 10 months, but on October 21, 1915, the ship could not withstand the pressure any longer and broke and part of it sank.
The sunken remains are located at a depth of about 3,000 meters in the Weddell Sea and are in extraordinary conservation conditions, at the head of the expedition called in during 22 is the British explorer Dr. John Shears who also led an expedition in 2019 .
Luckily endurance also sank and fell on a flat terrain that has not been disturbed by erosion or underwater landslide, it would have been much worse if it had fallen on a mountainous terrain with large cracks, it also has the advantage that the sediment deposition has been very low, it is believed that it has been only one millimeter per year and due to the depth there are no organisms that eat the ship's wood.
