According to the Daily Mail, the former HMS Endeavour was found. This was the ship sailed by Captain Cook when he discovered and explored the east coast of Australia in 1769-71, and it has turned up in Newport, Rhode Island.

She completed a three year voyage of discovery, returned to England and vanished from history, only to be rediscovered herself. The ship and crew made a fascinating journey. I kind of miss those days.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, fixed it now.

Heard that on the radio this AM on the way to work. Pretty big deal in my book. Especially as we in Little Rhody get a front row seat for this.

It's the kind of thing I remember when I think about the slow route to Mars. We can't live off the land, but then, it's the 21st century.
