Fram („Forward”) is a ship that was used in expeditions of the Arctic and Antarctic regions by the Norwegian explorers Fridtjof Nansen, Otto Sverdrup, Oscar Wisting, and Roald Amundsen between 1893 and 1912.

Nansen and his team killed mostly for food, but despite being men of science, they still often killed for the sheer thrill of it. – Polar Bears. The Arctic’s Fearless Great Wanderers. Amazing Stories by Anthony Dalton
