People have been sailing the sea for thousands of years. Long ago, most seafarers stayed close to the coasts, but some adventurous explorers made awe-inspiring journeys, crossing the oceans to settle in new places. This fascinating guide to the science of seafaring explores how methods of moving over the sea have changed through the centuries, from using oars and simple sails to huge nuclear powered ships. It covers how technology has allowed us to stay afloat, navigate, move through water, and survive bad weather – and even go below the surface, as in the iconic submarine. Features include funny and interesting illustrations; real-world science examples; side panels to tackle complex subject matter in a fun and relevant way; detailed glossary and more.
