The Discovery of HMS Terror

This is just a quick, celebratory post in honor of the Terror and her tremendously gallant crew. How fortuitous that the ship's resting place was ascertained a mere two years after the discovery of HMS Erebus in Queen Maud Gulf! How, as Franklin aficionados, can we possibly contain our excitement and emotions over this colossal historical find? Our waiting and wondering is finally over; our speculations can finally be allayed. Now, a new chapter begins, one in which we might finally obtain some concrete answers regarding the fates of our Victorian heroes.
