Super hot rush bulletin!

Franklin has been found!

At least one of the ships of the Franklin Expedition.

And this is very germane to a recent blog entry. Thanks to the Jungle Trader.

Canadian sovereignty claims in the far Arctic north in part based on the long-lost Franklin Expedition.

"Franklin's Lost Expedition" 

BBC News:

"One of two British explorer ships that vanished in the Arctic more than 160 years ago has been found, Canada's prime minister says."

"Stephen Harper said it was unclear which ship had been found, but photo evidence confirmed it was one of them. "

"Sir John Franklin led the two ships and 129 men in 1845 to chart the Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic."

"The expedition's disappearance shortly after became one of the great mysteries of the age of Victorian exploration."

More to follow I assume? Most of these searches for the "lost expedition" or the valiant "lost explorer" never finding a thing. NOT in this case and most surprisingly so!
