Jennifer L. said:
The fascinating story about the quest to invent a way to determine longitude at sea. In 1714 John Harrison, a self-taught clock maker, was up against the scientists of his time to find a way to determine "longitude at sea" to assit captains of ships in navigating where they were resulting in fewer ship wrecks. A very easily readable account for the layperson of a involved scientific topic.
