272 - Franklin's Lost Expedition

Kate Eschner in the Smithsonian Magazine, writes: “In 1845, Arctic veteran Sir John Franklin departed Britain in command of two ships, the HMS Terror and Erebus, to seek the fabled Northwest Passage in the Arctic. They were last seen by Europeans in Baffin Bay, off the coast of Greenland. Then both ships disappeared, seemingly swallowed by the ice and never heard from again, at least not from the explorers themselves”. This is the mysterious story of Franklin's Lost Expedition!
