STOCKHOLM — A U.S. oceanographic institute said it has found the wreckage of a ship that was manned by a crew of doomed Antarctic explorers more than a century ago.

The Schmidt Ocean Institute said that its researchers discovered the SS Terra Nova using echo sounders off the southern coast of Greenland, where the ship sank in 1943.

The SS Terra Nova gained fame by taking the explorer Robert Scott and a crew to the Antarctic in 1910 in an effort to become the first to reach the South Pole.
