Yet the Polynesians covered more open water than the Norsemen, fine sailors though they were, ever dreamed of. As Hervey Garrett Smith says, "Different ships, different long splices." It's all sailing, right?

ps: i like your astronomy picture of the day...
Thanks, I wish it were mine; it's a NASA site, with a new article & picture every day. The archive has some great stuff. Occasionally they have videos of things like launches, planetary flybys, and astronomical phenomena. Great for lousy-weather days. Can you say "time sink"?
