Caption: Ship stuck in Antarctic ice. Historical artwork of Jules Dumont d'Urville's ship the Astrolabe stuck on an ice floe in the Antarctic in 1838. During this expedition (from 1837-1840) D'Urville discovered the Adelie coast (named after his wife) and Joinville Island. His observations also helped to prove that Antarctica was a continent.
