Engleski moreplovac, istraživač.
Jedan od ciljeva putovanja kapetana DŽemsa Kuka bio je otkriće južne zemlje. Ali umesto kontinenta, Kuku je otkrio okean. Napravivši skoro potpuno kružno putovanje oko Zemljine kugle u dalekim južnim širinama, Kuk je utvrdio postojanje olujnog okeana, koji ide potpuno oko Zemlje južno od Afrike, Australije i Južne Amerike. Možda je on verovao da je grupa Sendvičkih ostrva deo američkog kontinenta, ali nije baš sigurno da je baš on prvi koji je video ta ili druga ostrva Antarktičkog okeana. Vrlo je verovatno da su američki lovci foka bili tamo pre njega, ali u tom poglavlju o antarktičkom istraživanju ima mnogo nenapisanih strana. Lovci foka iz Amerike nisu želeli da njihovi konkurenti nađu bogata lovišta foka i stoga su držali u tajnosti pojedinosti svojih putovanja. Očigledno je da su oni lovili u blizini spoljnih antarktičkih ostrva mnogo godina pre 19. veka, jer je većina krznatih foka u tim vodama bila uništena 1820. godine. Te godine je kapetan N.B. Palmer, prvi put ugledo antarktički kontinent. Sto godina kasnije istraživači su i dalje činili nova otkrića u pogledu prirode Južnog kontinenta, o kome su sanjali stari geografi, za kojim se tako dugo tragalo, koji je proglašen za mit i koji ne naposletku utvrđen kao jedna od velikih Zemljinih kontinentalnih masa.

1. Cook

muški rodlično ime

(1728-1779) British naval explorer. After surveying the St Lawrence River in North America 1759, he made three voyages: 1768–71 to Tahiti, New Zealand, and Australia; 1772–75 to the South Pacific; and 1776–79 to the South and North Pacific, attempting to find the Northwest Passage and charting the Siberian coast. He was killed in Hawaii.
In 1768 Cook was given command of an expedition to the South Pacific to witness Venus eclipsing the Sun. He sailed in the Endeavour with Joseph Banks and other scientists, reaching Tahiti in April 1769. He then sailed around New Zealand and made a detailed survey of the east coast of Australia, naming New South Wales and Botany Bay. He returned to England 12 June 1771.
Now a commander, Cook set out 1772 with the Resolution and Adventure to search for the southern continent. The location of Easter Island was determined, and the Marquesas and Tonga Islands plotted. He also went to New Caledonia and Norfolk Island. Cook returned 25 July 1775, having sailed 100,000 km/60,000 mi in three years.
On 25 June 1776, he began his third and last voyage with the Resolution and Discovery. On the way to New Zealand, he visited several of the Cook or Hervey Islands and revisited the Hawaiian or Sandwich Islands. The ships sighted the North American coast at latitude 45ş N and sailed north hoping to discover the Northwest Passage. He made a continuous survey as far as the Bering Strait, where the way was blocked by ice. Cook then surveyed the opposite coast of the strait (Siberia), and returned to Hawaii early 1779, where he was killed in a scuffle with islanders.
Cook was born in Marton, Yorkshire, and joined the navy 1755. His expeditions set new standards of survey work, cartography, hydrography, and other scientific research.
