“Britain has a long and distinguished history of exploration and scientific endeavour in Antarctica”, says Rachel Morgan, Director of the UKAHT, “from Captain Cook’s circumnavigation in 1773 right up to the present day”.

“The Terra Nova is an iconic part of Britain’s Antarctic heritage and was a critical part of one of the most famous expeditions in British history. As such, we welcome Schmidt Ocean’s discovery of her exact location”.
