Shackleton Centenary Expedition

Sponsored by Matrix & Timberland


12.6 nm achieved today in low, heavy cloud and flat light. Listen to Henry Adams's report describing the sheer scale of the Ross Ice Shelf.


Henry W has been able to get the PDA working today and so has sent through a couple of photos which I have published as part of the daily report.


We have also received some great video footage from New Zealand (see below). This was taken by a film crew making an educational film about drilling in the ice for environmental samples, when along came our team of explorers! It was shot at Cape Evans on Day 2 of the expedition.

There was also coverage on NZTV which you can see here.

100 Years Ago

Note that Shackleton achieved a new "Furthest South" record today in 1908, beating the previous record set on the 1902 Discovery expedition.
