Best Explorers of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Neil Armstrong Neil Armstrong

First man on the moon - indian

2 Christopher Columbus Christopher Columbus Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer, navigator, colonizer and citizen of the Republic of Genoa.

Put this lower

He discoverd america but people were already living there - indian


3 Henry Hudson

Discovered so much water the that he has more named after him in the world - indian

Henry Hudson is by far the best explorer. He should have a holiday instead of Columbus. It’s just a fact. I don’t care what all you columbians say, Columbus is a terrible explorer, he discovered America by accident. - Thisgoronsonfire

4 Vasco da Gama

He traveled in the huge "sea", with his crew, from Lisbon (Portugal) to Goa (India) and he did that in the 15th century, in a "wood boat".

Ps: Columbus in fact wasn't a great navigator... His mission was also to discovery the "maritime path to India" and he failed it, he just got the luck to find another place on his travel.
