What if you lived on an island and had no idea how the rest of the world looked like. Would you jump on the only ship on the island and steer it towards the ocean to explore the unknown? Yes? No? What would be most challenging for you?

Now imagine that some incredible brave people in the british Royal Navy did this throughout their entire lives. They were sent on a mission to draw realistic and trustworthy world maps and each trip lasted for many years. Many of them died. Some even got killed by cannibals in Papua New Guinea. Others were lucky and survived both the tough storms and the illnesses that comes with lack of nutritious food, a common thing onboard a ship in the old days. Nowadays we let satellites do the job for us. 😊
