2016-09-14 03:13:24

Almost 170 years on, HMS Terror, a long-lost ship that vanished while searching for the Northwest Passage, is believed to have been found. The vanishing sparked one of the world's great maritime mysteries.The vessel was part of Sir John Franklin's polar expedition. The Arctic Research Foundation said it was spotted on the sea bed off King William Island in the Canadian Arctic.Foundation spokesman Adrian Schimnowski said the ship was found in nearly pristine condition in about 80 feet of water, with most windowpanes still intact. He added, "If you could lift this boat out of the water, and pump the water out, it would probably float." He said that everything points to the vessel being the HMS Terror.
