News from Canada: Franklin’s ship discovered

Oct 1, 2014 | News

In September 2014 Akademik Sergey Vavilov was one of four vessels involved in the Victoria Strait Expedition to find Erebus and Terror — the two lost vessels of Sir John Franklin’s Expedition, missing in Arctic waters for the past 160 years.

With more ice last season than usual it was an astonishing feat to bring back photographic evidence of Erebus. The loss of the vessels off the northwest coast of King William Island, was a momentous drama that has long captured Canadians’ imagination.

Akedemic Ioffe is heading there this summer — why not join the voyage? 

When: 12-24 August 2015
