Limit - Expedition to the Edge of the World

A journey across the universe

Once upon a time, a sea journey was one of the most hazardous

Fear accompanied them wherever they sailed – the fear of plunging over the edge of the world. Courageous men like Columbus and Magellan dared to sail far out across the ocean and thus proved that the Earth is not a disk, but a sphere.
