Fram

 

a Norwegian polar expeditionary vessel. The Fram was built in 1892 on the orders of F. Nansen. It had a displacement of 402 tons. From 1893 to 1896, during an expedition commanded by Nansen (until 1895) and later by O. Sverdrup, the ship drifted in the arctic from the Novosibirskie Islands to points north of Spitzbergen. From 1898 to 1902, Sverdrup sailed in the Fram on a voyage in the Canadian arctic archipelago. R. Amundsen led an antarctic expedition on the Fram from 1910 to 1912. The ship has been installed in a museum in Oslo.
