Endurance22 Expedition: The Search for the World's Most Famous Shipwreck
Tim Jacob - Director of Reach the World's Traveler Program
"It's history that was just visible and palpable on the screen for us in 4k...as soon as we saw the the data coming up from the seabed, it was just pure exhilaration." - Tim Jacob
We have a thrilling two-part series for you covering the Endurance22 Expedition to Antarctica...the hunt for the lost shipwreck of Ernest Shackleton.
Our guest is Tim Jacob, Director of the Traveler Program at Reach the World, who was on board the S.A. Agulhas II as it searched for the wreck and shared this experience live with students across the globe.

3 Big Takeaways from this episode:
- The story of the Endurance is legendary: From the dangerous undertakings of Antarctic exploration in 1915, to being ice-locked and stranded, to the struggle for survival, Ernest Shackleton and his crew remain legends today. Tim retells the adventure in a way that makes you feel like you're there.
- Modern technology is no match for an unchanged, harsh environment: The ships and communication technology of the S.A. Agulhas II are exponentially more advanced than the Endurance, yet the dangers of the Weddell Sea are nearly identical today as they were in 1915. Modern exploration technology enables great feats of scientific discovery, but there is still great risk involved.
- The Endurance22 mission is perhaps the greatest historical discovery of 2022: After unsuccessful voyages to find the wreck of the Endurance, the 2022 expedition's success marks a historic and scientific feat over 100 years in the making. This may be the greatest discovery of 2022.
