Ancient Navigation


Al Matheson
 

Here's another fascinating and a very informative talk given by Al Matheson. This time he gives us insight as to how Christopher Columbus and other early explorers navigated their way across thousands of miles of ocean and returned to their point of origin. All this and they knew exactly where they were all the time.

You will learn that our ancient explorers knew more than we ever thought about celestial navigation. Al explains the whole concept of Longitude and Latitude. Why is the earth divided into 360 degrees? It's not coincidence and Al relates the reasons why.

Another secret is revealed, Al explains how we can pick any star in the heavens and calculate direction without using a compass.
