‘The Ship That Changed The World’ Documentary Airs Tonight


If you’re a shipwreck fan and live in the USA, you’ll want to tune in tonight to watch the latest episode of NOVA on PBS.

Five hundred years ago, a major revolution overturned traditional ship designs, with ships being transformed from small coastal transports into larger ocean-going vessels capable of long-distance exploration.

This had huge ramifications for the world as Europe’s age of imperialism and colonialism began.

NOVA’s latest episode, “The Ship That Changed The World,” probes a wreck found off the coast of Sweden in search of clues.

You can watch that episode tonight on PBS or via the PBS app. Check out a preview below.
