Endurance Model(Click thumbnail photos to enlarge)
The Endurance was Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship for the 1914 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. The ship was built in Norway and launched in December 1912. It was originally intended for use in tourism but was sold due to the original owners' financial difficulties. Shackleton re-christened it "Endurance" after "Fortitudine vincimus", his famly motto which translates to "By endurance we conquer". The ill-fated expedition resulted in the ship sinking in November 1915 due to ice compression in the Weddell Sea near Antarctica.
