Symphony #8-1421
 

The Wind, the Sea, the Heavens, the Unknown

Authored by Mr. Wayne

In 1421, Third Ming Dynasty Emperor, Zhu Di, sent out an armada to circumnavigate the globe, led by five Mongol Muslim Eunuchs. These remarkable Chinese admirals rounded the Cape of Hope sixty-six years before Dias, passed through the Strait of Magellan ninety-eight years before Magellan, surveyed Australia three centuries before Captain Cook, Antartica and the Artic four centuries before the first Europeans, and America seventy years before Columbus. The great admirals Zheng He, Hong Boa, Zhou Man, Zhou Wen and Yang Qing deserve to be remembered and celebrated too, for they were the first, the bravest and most daring of all. Those who followed them, no matter how great their achievements, were sailing in their wake.
