On November 20, 1915, explorer Ernest Shackelton’s ship Endurance sank to the bottom of the Weddell Sea after months of being slowly crushed by Antarctic sea ice.

For more than 100 years, Endurance remained underwater, its exact location unknown.

But on March 9, an international expedition team announced that it had identified the vessel’s final resting place.
