This time he would go with 3 ships and 110 men. He went up the St. Lawrence river and stopped at Quebec. His third and final voyage was when the war in Europe called for another voyage.

Changes in Exploration Over the Years

Exploration has changed because now people can travel by plane instead of boat. Also the medical aid has changed because diseases spread a lot quicker but people have better medicine. We also can get to places a lot easier because even if you do go by boat we have motors, not oars. We can also just use a drone to fly around the world and not have to leave your house. We can also just FaceTime someone in another country and look around with them. In conclusion, exploration today is a lot more advanced.
