OriginEdit

Hubert Wilkins was a polar explorer who made several Arctic expeditions by sea and air. His most reputed was the Nautilus expedition, a trans-Atlantic journey by submarine. Partially funded by his wife, himself and American newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, there were many obstacles during the journey. The quartermaster had drowned, the engines required repair and the diving planes were missing. The captain had to ram the sub into an ice floe to properly submerge it, which damaged the radio systems. Wilkins ended the voyage, but not before a massive storm heavily damaged the sub, forcing him to scuttle it off Norwegian waters.
