Ships of Discovery

sheds light on the ships that have made our planet one world—

the first truly transoceanic ships the world had ever seen,

the ships of the Age of Columbus,

to . . . .

This, the Age of Discovery.

Five hundred years ago, Spain embarked on the maritime exploration of the Ocean Sea.
Today the world stands poised to explore the final frontier—space.

Archaeology offers a perspective of what really happened in the past and insight into the future.
The tide of history draws our species into the sea of space; it is the nature of humans to explore.

We have already begun.
