ONCE UPON A TIME…THE EXPLORERS

"Once upon a time... the Explorers" is a counterpart to "... the Discoverers", which took us along the route to discovery of scientific knowledge. "The Explorers", on the other hand, take us to unknown lands and horizons. They will show us how we came to know our planet which a very few centuries ago, we must never forget, was just a terra incognita...
