On this day the birth of Captain James Cook, English naval officer and one of the greatest navigators in history. His voyages in the Endeavour led to the European discovery of Australia, New Zealand and the Hawaiian Islands.
It's a continent. Some Flat Earth believers claim Captain James Cook traveled 60,000 miles around the Antarctica circle. No, the entire voyage lasted three years and eight days covering more than 60,000 miles and included the distance to and from England. The distance around Antarctica is 11,000 miles.
