    Age of European Exploration
  • Introduction to the Age of Exploration
    In the early fifteenth century, the sea-faring nations of Europe were poised to expand their influence in the rest of the world by a program of sustained and systematic exploration. In some cases, exploration was fanned by the quest of knowledge about the world in which Europeans lived, for others, the motive was profit. Still others justified their actions as the logical extension of the Crusades of Christianity against Islam.
  • Life at Sea in the Age of Sail
    Over a period of hundreds of years, seafarers from the age of the early explorers to the time of the Battle of Trafalgar shared many common experiences. Men working at sea had much to endure. Cut off from normal life on shore for months, even years, they had to accept cramped conditions, disease and poor food and pay. Above all they faced the daily dangers of sea and weather.
  • Introduction to the Age of Exploration
    The desire to explore the unknown has been a driving force in human history since the dawn of time. From the earliestdocumented accounts, ancient civilizations have explored the earth by sea. Early adventurers were motivated by religious beliefs, the desire forconquest, the need to establish trade routes, and hunger for gold.

    The Portuguese were the first to push out into the Atlantic, but it was Spain, following close behind, that built a New World empire that provided the economic basis for a period of Spanish supremacy in European affairs. In the short run, Spanish gold and silver form the New world made the Spanish Netherlands the financial and manufacturing center of Europe, and Spain became Europe's greatest military power. In the long run, however, overseas expansion ruined the Spanish economy, created massive European inflations, and brought the end of Spain's empire in Europe. Schmiechen, James.

    Can Aurora Become Europe's New Age Of Planetary Discovery
    spacer original Tokyo 1996 by Hans-Arthur Marsiske
    Noordwijk - Apr 02, 2002
    Franco Ongaro spends his working day thinking about how to take European scientists, engineers and their sponsors to distant worlds in the decades ahead. In an interview by new SpaceDaily contributor Hans-Arthur Marsiske, Ongaro who is ESA's coordinator of the Advanced Studies and Concepts Office outlines to our readers his evolving blueprint for a new age of planetary discovery. QUESTION: Mr. Ongaro, what was the starting point for Aurora? Can you give us a sketch of the development so far? ONGARO: At a meeting of the ESA council at the end of 2000 we recommended the development of a European program for the exploration of the solar system. That was the result of several earlier activities, including the decision of the ESA council and the European research ministers for a common space strategy. This document calls upon ESA to identify the next steps in human space exploration. That was a clear mandate for us. At the same time the Italian delegation presented a "White Paper" that called for a coordinated European program for the robotic exploration of Mars. Although Italy, France, Germany, and several other European countries participate in specific Mars missions of NASA and ESA, Europe does not have a long-term plan that would go beyond that. Furthermore, there is no connection between these activities and the possible next step, a manned mission to Mars.

    You can still hear the captain's orders ringing in your ears; "Hard A-Lee, men! We're ridin' her out. We're not lettin' that scallywag get away from us now." You can see the angry gray storm clouds in the distance, and just below them, a frigate flying the purple and black flag of 'Fancy' Paul Durrand. The latest rumors around the crew is that Fancy Paul got his hands on a load of mithril from those dwarven ruins you saw a few days back. That's probably why he's riding so heavily in the water.

    Great sailing vessels cross the Quilla Ocean from the Northern and Southern Empires to the colonies to the far west, avoiding savage pirates, vicious sea monsters and most of all, one another! The two Empires war, not only on the battlefield, but in the marketplaces as well. It is a race for power, resources and wealth.
    In the heavens above, twelve deities look down upon Ptalmanar and guide it's people. The most devout worshippers undergo rituals of initiation to take a piece of their god's power into their own souls, opening their bodies to the touch of the divine. The greatest among them can rise to the level of High Priest, assuming the mantle of leadership of the flock and bearing the terrible burden of being the terrestrial voice of their deity. The Maker, creator of all, sits atop the divine wheel with the gods of light cascading down each side. At the bottom, surrounded by his dark children, sits the Unmaker, force of destruction and death. Their eternal struggle is played out wholly in the actions of their earthly followers, ever competing for dominance of the world and the place of Good and Evil.
