After all that time, the trombone they left behind must have gotten pretty rusty.

I'm confused. Is it a box of a hundred year-old negatives, or a box of 100-year-old negatives?

Actual headline:

On Ice: 100 year-old negatives discovered in Antarctic

So, there a hundred negatives, and they're a year old.

Got it.

Undeveloped negatives? You develop FILM to get negatives.

That's pretty great. I have a certain fondness for the tale of Scott's voyage to the Pole, as I played the part of Evans in the play Terra Nova, a semi-fictionalized account of the journey. After he and his team covered 1000+ miles on foot, the last of them died just 11 miles away from One Ton Depot, a supply hut that was warm, sheltering and well-stocked with food and provisions.

Awesome find! I've been watching Frozen Earth, a nature documentary by the same people who developed Planet Earth. Blows my mind how vast and diverse the arctic is. Truly the final frontier of earth.

Maybe I'm blind, or crappy IE8 at work is hiding some of the page, but where can I see the whole set of images?

It's Antarctica that's 100 years old. Either that or it's the box containing the negs that's a hundred years old.

I should also clarify, it focuses on both of the poles. Even has some behind the scenes footage at the end of some of the episodes (though I'd prefer that to be in the extras)

If you read on the shackleton party, it was quite gripping, a & E made a fulllength feature of it a few years back, no men were lost, they had to eat the dogs and such, before being rescued by a whaling station. interesting indeed.

Smithsonian Channel runs "Shackleton's Frozen Hell" every once in awhile. Gives a brief account of the expedition and all I could think while watching was, "nope." Too damned cold and isolated and shiat like that happens?! Hells nah.

Know how we can tell you didn't read the first paragraph of TFA?

FTA: "a small box of 22 exposed but unprocessed photographic negatives, frozen in a solid block of ice for nearly one hundred years."

Being dumbasses who got stuck in the ice?   Next we'll probably hear that those GW ship-frozen-in-ice hipsters are "heroes".

From what I have seen, giant balls get you killed. I`ll keep my `large but in the normal range` balls and stay alive a lot longer thank you.

Also, just being in the army and getting shot, getting yourself killed through stupidity, or getting cancer and not dying does not make you a hero.

Being shiat scared of dying and still getting your injured comrade out of the line of fire, or standing up to an abusive husband, or facing an oppressive government. Those things make you a hero.

If you ever really want to get a sense of the hell the explorers experienced, read "Hoosh", which is a book about all the culinary, uh, "adventures" of Antarctic exploration.  That will make you real glad that you didn't go on any of the early expeditions.  Then the descriptions of the current menu of the French nationals will make you want to book the next flight down...

Go to you tube and look up "Endurance" PBS documentary that is really well made.

That's what I was thinking.

To me being a hero is risking your own health or life for some greater goal or to help others.

Climbing mountains or trekking to stupid places doesn't seem heroic, just stupid.

The air is so dry there, the trombone will not have rusted, though I think you are engaging in innuendo.

Cold virus can't survive in the outdoors there.

My Antarctic photos are 40 years old already. I have to look for them. Probably really faded.

If they aren't developed after a hundred years, that's as big as they're gonna get.

I just hope they don't open the crate they found with the negatives. Better to just shove it under the stairs and forget about it.

[www.gutenberg.org image 461x349]


Just to clarify for those who don't know the story, they weren't "rescued by a whaling station" until Shackleton and 5 men sailed an open boat 1800 miles in stormy, sub-zero seas to South Georgia Island, then hiked across the mountains and over 3 glaciers to the whaling station to ASK the whaling station to send a ship to rescue the rest of the stranded party. Shackleton's book "South" details the whole thing and is a great read.

Also recommended: "The Worst Journey in the World". It is a first-person account of another expedition that will make you want to buy a Snuggie and a lifetime supply of hot cocoa.

Or read Shackleton's account, "South".  Written shortly after the expedition, plenty of great photos and drawings.  Straightforward, no-nonsense journal.  Other than being a little too specific on what types of ice they encountered, it's a great story.  But it's not exactly "rescued by a whaling station".  Shack and a couple other officers sailed a lifeboat about 800 miles to South Georgia Island to the whaling station for help....
