Jerry Richardson on Longitude

Prof. Jerry Richardson, P.E., D.WRE shares his love of nonfiction, engineering-related literature by unpacking Longitude by Dava Sobel. His storytelling is enhanced by some audio clips from the A&E "Longitude" movie. Solving the longitude problem was key to successful transoceanic travel, and helped ensure England's place in naval superiority in the 19th century. Another web resource. Listen to the podcast.
