“FROM now our route goes farther on, into unexplored land, which no human eyes have yet seen” wrote Xavier Mertz, a member of Douglas Mawson’s Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE), on November 17, 1912. A sense of Mertz’s excitement at his team’s progress, however, escapes the 74 passengers and crew of the MV Akademik Shokalskiy, a climate-research ship currently stranded in Antarctica (whose mission was in part to commemorate the final months of Mawson’s original journey a century ago). Stuck in pack-ice since Christmas Eve around 100 nautical miles from the French Antarctic station Dumont D’Urville, the Russian vessel has not been freed despite the efforts of icebreakers from Australia, China and France.
