History

Captain James Cook
Captain James Cook
Occupation: Explorer
Born: October 27, 1728 in Marton, England
Died: Killed by natives at the Hawaiian Islands on February 14, 1779
Best known for: Exploring the South Pacific
First Expedition
Cook set off for his first journey on August 26, 1768. His main objective was to observe the planet Venus as it passed between the Earth and the Sun. This would help astronomers to calculate the distance of the Sun from the Earth. He also hoped to find the fabled southern continent.
During this trip he visited Tahiti (where he made the observations of Venus), the Society Islands, and New Zealand. He mapped much of the two main islands of New Zealand, but also ended up fighting with the local Maori tribe.
Next stop on the journey was the east coast of Australia. Captain James Cook claimed Australia for England in 1770. It was first used as a penal colony by the English. Here James and his crew found all sorts of interesting animals and plants including the kangaroo. Unfortunately, the ship was damaged on some coral and they had to stop for a while to do repairs. Many of the crew got malaria from mosquitoes during this stop and over 30 of the crew died from the disease. Finally they returned home in July of 1771, nearly three years after their departure.
