Captain Cook’s first expedition to the South Pacific in 1768 was funded jointly by the Royal Society and the British Admiralty. The primary purpose of this voyage was to obtain astronomical observations of the planet Venus transiting across the disk of the Sun.
NASA Administrator Mike Griffin’s address will apply certain lessons learned from one of the Royal Society’s greatest explorers to the endeavours NASA is carrying out today in exploring the planets, moons, asteroids, and comets of our solar system.
