Victoria and the Triton: Two Global Expeditions That Reveal the Advance in Marine Technology with the Passage of Four and a Third Centuries
Bern Dibner (au)
“Victoria,” was the Portuguese caravel that first successfully circumnavigated the globe 1519-1522 captained by Ferdinand Magellan. The essay sets this voyage in the context of Portuguese navigation and empire. The epochal achievement of Magellan’s fleet was echoed in the magnificent accomplishment by the nuclear submarine “Triton” in 1960. It demonstrated that a company of men could live and work in the depth of the ocean for months at a time. It showed that through the new technology a source of power had been made in such abundance and so manageable that, without refueling, an 8,000-ton vehicle could be driven through water around the globe. Beautifully designed. Maps, engravings and photos.
