Recounts how John Harrision discovered the concept of longitude in the 18th century, thus making the waters safe for navigation.
Without longitude's guidance, navigation in the 1700s was unpredictable and deadly...until one man solved the mystery: a humble, ingenious country carpenter named John Harrison.

A great look at how longitude became measureable. I hadn't realized that longitude was so important and difficult to measure.
