In this Feb. 7, 2013 photo released by Shackleton Epic, the expedition crew on their boat Alexander Shackleton pass Point Wild on Elephant Island in the Southern Ocean. A modern-day team of six led by Tim Jarvis and Barry Gray used similar equipment and clothes to a re-enacted a 1916 expedition led by Ernest Shackleton to save his crew after their ship got stuck in Antarctica’s icy waters. In honor of the epic journey the team sailed 800 nautical miles on the Southern Ocean in a small lifeboat and then climbed over crevasse-filled mountains in South Georgia to complete the historic journey.
