    “We needed to test the sonars, and what better test than to find a small object on the seabed?” says Beaudoin. “It was a happy collision of circumstances.”

Built as a whaler in 1884, the Terra Nova took Scott and his crew to Antarctica in 1911 on Scott’s bid to be the first person to reach the South Pole. Not only was he beaten there by the Norwegian party led by Roald Amundsen, Scott and his entire team perished on the return trek across Antarctica. The Terra Nova survived, however, and until its sinking in 1943 it was used in various polar capacities, including seal fishing and trading.
