The Early Days
Changes in Exploration Over the Years
Exploration has changed from the time of many explorers to now. One reason is communication. Back then, explores couldn’t communicate across the world quickly like we can do now with cell phones. They would have to write letters which could take months for a person to receive unlike a phone call. Secondly, another way exploration has changed is that you had to be at the place you were exploring to see it before cameras, virtual field trips, google maps, and recordings were invented. When you were buying and trading goods you had to go by sea or by land, they didn’t have the choice to go by airplanes, jets, trains, and cars like we do today. Then, the discoveries are very different. Back then, they were still figuring out if the world was round and if there was other land. Today we’ve gone to space and named our 8 main planets and most likely discovered all of the islands and contents. Another way exploration has changed is knowledge. The other explores most likely didn't know that there were other planets and galaxies like we do today. Lastly, navigation tools have changed a lot too. Now we have a GPS, google maps, siri, and other electronic devices to help us get to our destination. The explores that didn’t have these things used paper maps and compasses. In conclusion, there are many ways exploration has changed over time and will continue to keep changing, as we keep on learning about the world around us.
