This project has been proudly brought to you by A30, which is not a sissy boyband, but a group of like-minded (yeah right) individuals who have banded together in the early 21st century to give due credit and attention to the life-saving art of Navigation.
We will be covering the history of navigation which includes brief sections on its beginings, the people who have contributed to navigation as a whole and the motivations for navigating.
As well as the cultural aspect of navigation, we will like to bring to the esteemed reader's attention two very different tools of navigation...the Sextant and the GPS, the old and the new. Hopefully after reading our sections covering the aforementioned devices the reader will have a basic understanding of the workings of the above tools.
Finally we will be producing a working model of the sextant.
Navigation...Then and Now
