Floating Museum

— In the latest National Geographic Radio Expedition, John McChesney reports from aboard the H.M. Bark Endeavour. The ship is a replica of the vessel sailed by Captain James Cook 230 years ago on his explorations of Australia and New Zealand. On Thursday the Endeavour will dock at West Palm Beach in Florida. There, the ship described as a "floating museum" begins an eight-month tour of ports on the east coast.
