Fig. 1 - S1 (15->26.11.2015) - Sea ice in Wedell Sea exactly 100 years after the Endurance sank; the expedition's main events are shown.
Fig. 2 - S1 (05.11.2020->16.01.2021) - The expedition led by Ernest Shackleton left the British island of South Georgia.

Endurance became stuck in the dense pack ice in January 1915. The expedition members remained living aboard the ship for several months until 27 October 1915 when Shackleton took the decision to abandon it. The ship was crushed by sea-ice and sank on 21 November 1915.

Shackleton and his men to make an astonishing escape on foot and in small boats. They trekked to the edge of the sea ice, then sailed in the salvaged ship’s lifeboats to Elephant Island where there were seals and penguins to eat and a sheltered bay in which to camp under the upturned lifeboats.
Fig. 5 - S2 (22.02.2018) - For one month, Shackleton and 5 men sailed to South Georgia to call for rescue for the crew left behind.
Shackleton and Worsley led a small party in one of the open boats to South Georgia, where there was a whaling station. On 30 August 1916, the fourth attempt to reach the stranded expedition members at Elephant island was a success, and the expedition party was taken to safety by the Chilean tug ‘Yelcho’. All 28 crew survived the failed expedition, now remembered in history as one of the most epic feats of endurance in the heroic age of Antarctic exploration.
