Nova. Ship that changed the world

Palmquist, Owen (screenwriter,, television producer.). Cahalane, Laurie (television producer.). Wolfinger, Kirk (television director.). Sechler, Craig (narrator.). PBS Distribution (Firm), (publisher.).

Summary: Some five centuries ago, a major revolution overturned traditional ship designs. In just a few years, ships were transformed from small coastal-bound transports into massive ocean-going vessels capable of long-distance exploration. These designs were crucial to launching Europe's age of imperial expansion and colonial exploitation, toppling the indigenous civilizations of the New World and spreading pandemics.
