All too often, voyages ended in disaster when crew and cargo were either lost at sea or destroyed upon the rocks of an unexpected landfall. Thousands of lives and the fortunes of nations hung on a resolution. Governments established prizes for anyone whose method or device proved successful. The scientific establishment, certain that a celestial answer would be found, invested untold effort in this pursuit. By contrast, John Harrison built the unimaginable: a clock that told perfect time at sea, known today as the chronometer. Harrison's trials and tribulations during his forty-year quest to win the prize are the culmination of this remarkable story.--From publisher description+-+599862753587716ocn045004578visu19990.19Sturridge, CharlesLongitudeHistoryBiographyFictionDramaTelevision adaptationsFilm adaptationsTelevision programsInterweaves two stories: John Harrison's forty-year obsession with building his perfect timekeeper, known today as the chronometer; and naval officer Rupert Gould who, two hundred years later, stumbles across Harrison's forgotten chromometers and devotes himself to restoring Harrison's long-neglected mechanical masterpieces5885ocn040279910visu19980.20Lost at sea the search for longitudeHistoryBiography"Before global positioning systems, modern map making -- even before America was America -- the concept of longitude was just a dream.

The quest for a solution has occupied scientists for the better part of two centuries when, in 1714, England's Parliament upped the ante by offering a king's ransom to anyone whose method or device proved successful. One man, John Harrison, dared to imagine a mechanical solution--a clock that would keep precise time at sea, something no clock had ever been able to do on land. Longitude is the dramatic human story of an epic scientific quest, and of Harrison's forty-year obsession with building his perfect timekeeper, known today as the chronometer. Full of heroism and chicanery, brilliance and the absurd, it is also a fascinating brief history of astronomy, navigation, and clockmaking. Through Dava Sobel's consummate skill, Longitude opens many new windows on our world. "The marine chronometer is a glorious and fascinating object, but it is not a simple one, and its explanation calls for a writer as skilled with words as the watchmakers were with their tools: happily just such a writer has been found in Dava Sobel."--Patrick O'Brian, author of the Aubrey/Maturin naval series+-+25237406963243985ocn034878901book19960.50Andrewes, William J.

The scientific establishment of Europe--from Galileo to Sir Issac Newton--had mapped the heavens in both hemispheres in its certain pursuit of a celestial answer. In stark contrast, one man, John Harrison, dared to imagine a mechanical solution--a clock that would keep precise time at sea, something no clock had ever been able to do on land.
