The Discovery of the Antarctic
The Russian Explorers Faddei Bellingshausenтand Michail Lazarev are among the most famous for their discovery of the Antarctic.
At the beginning of the XIX century it was still unknown if there was a continent in the Antarctic. All the attempts to enter the unexplored area had failed.
In 1819 another expedition of two Russian ships the Vostok and the Mirny was arranged. The ships led by F. Bellingshausen and M. Lazarev left Kronstadt on July 16, 1819. They were bound for the Antarctic. The first port of call was Portsmouth where they got food supplies and the necessary equipment. Then they crossed the Atlantic Ocean and sailed along the Brasilian coast. On their way the navigators mapped and described the southern coast of the Island of South Georgia and some small Islands.
They proceeded further to the south in constant danger of running into huge icebergs. Foggy weather and stormy sea made the navigation very difficult.
On the 28th of January, 1820, the Russian ships crossed the Atlantic circle. In the mist the travellors saw a huge wall of ice the height of which was up to 45-50 metres. It was the Antarctic. The explorers wondered if it would be possible to beach somewhere there.
They tried several times to do it but failed. So they decided to sail eastward forcing their way through the ice packs.
