Caption: Ship trapped in Antarctic ice, 1915. Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship the Endurance, crushed by ice in the Weddell Sea during an expedition to explore Antarctica in 1915. After the ship became permanently stuck, Shackleton and five of his crew rowed 1300km in a lifeboat to the island of South Georgia to bring relief. Shackleton died on board his new ship, the Quest, during his next Antarctic expedition in 1922.
