Notes

Far in the Arctic North, halfway between Greenland and Canada, lies the barren and desolate Hans Island in the middle of the 22-mile wide Nares Strait. The uninhabited half-square-mile island, possessing no apparent natural resources, is a bizarre sliver of territory for two countries to fight over. Due to international law, all countries have the right to claim territory within 12 miles of their shore. Peter Takso Jensen, the Danish Ambassador to the US, has said that "when Danish military go there, they leave a bottle of schnapps. And when Canadian military forces come there, they leave a bottle of Canadian Club and a sign saying, 'Welcome to Canada.'"

Notes

Being the first cruise to sink in the icy waters of the Antarctic Ocean, MS Explorer gained notoriety in 2007. Considered "perfect for ice navigation" she apparently got sank by solid ice, mistaken by the Captain for first-year ice. After drifting for 5 hours all 91 passengers, 9 guides and 54 crew were picked up by the Norwegian ship MS Nordnorge. Curiously Polar ep. 22. Follow us on Twitter.
