HMS Erebus and HMS Terror in the Arctic Featured 8 Apr 2003 Print

HMS Erebus and HMS Terror in the Arctic

HMS Erebus and HMS Terror in the Arctic. These two British naval ships made up Sir John Franklin's 1845 expedition to find the Northwest Passage, a sea-route between Canada and the Arctic that links the Atlantic to the Pacific. The ships were steel- fronted to help them push through ice. They were sailing vessels, but also equipped with a small steam engine and a propeller. The remains of the Erebus and records of the expedition were found in 1859. After being trapped in sea ice for 3 years, the remnant of the crew of 135 had abandoned ship to travel south. There were no survivors. Artwork published in the 1880s in Pictorial Chronicles of the Mighty Deep

Sir John Franklin, British explorer Featured 8 Apr 2003 Print

Sir John Franklin, British explorer

Sir John Franklin (1786-1847), the British naval officer and Arctic explorer who died with his crew attempting to find the Northwest Passage. Franklin was born in Spilsby, Lincolnshire, and joined the navy at 14. In 1845, he set out in search of the Northwest Passage, a sea-route between Canada and the Arctic that links the Atlantic to the Pacific. He never returned. His mysterious disappearance led to the organisation of many more expeditions. In 1859, the ship's remains and a record of the expedition were found. The crew had abandoned the ship when it became trapped in ice. There were no survivors. Artwork published in the 1880s in Pictorial Chronicles of the Mighty Deep

Common horsetail spore, SEM Featured 8 Apr 2003 Print

Common horsetail spore, SEM

Common horsetail spore. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a spore of a common horsetail (Equisetum arvense) plant. The spore (green) bears elaters (grey) that expand and contract with changes in humidity. Elaters help to tangle spores together into a clump called a propagule, and to dig spores into the soil. A spore is part of the sexual reproduction of this plant, and horsetails normally use asexual reproduction using rhizomes (underground stems). Horsetails are the only living group of a primitive family of plants, the Sphenopsids, that date back to the Devonian period, 355-410 million years ago. Magnification: x555 at 6x7cm size
