Captain Cook's Missing Ship May Be Found

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

British captain, James Cook, left behind a legacy, and possibly a ship or two.
Academics think it's possible Cook's famed ship, The Endeavour, may still be underwater somewhere near Newport Harbor, Rhode Island. Captain Cook reportedly sailed it around the world, and used it to claim Australia in the late 1700s.
The Australian National Maritime Museum has issued a grant to The Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project, in hopes the abandoned wreckage will be found in time for the 250th anniversary of Cook's voyage in 2028.
