Robert Scott’s SS Terra Nova found off Greenland coast

The wreck of the ship that took Captain Robert Scott on his ill-fated trip to the Antarctic in 1910 has been found underwater off the southern coast of Greenland.

A crew from the Schmidt Ocean Institute discovered the Terra Nova whilst testing echo-sounding equipment aboard its flagship vessel – the R/V Falkor.

One of the scientists noticed an unidentified feature during sonar mapping of the sea bed.

Team members then noted that the 57m length of the feature matched the reported length of the Terra Nova.
