Francis Drake – Queen Elizabeth I’s Secrets

The story of Sir Francis Drake is one of the most important of all British maritime history. The first circumnavigation of the world in 1577 was his greatest achievement, and he also led the first English slaving expeditions to America and West Africa. He was also one of the first people to explore and cross the Isthmus of Panama, a feat that still remains unmatched by any other person.

His life was an incredible adventure, full of twists and turns. In the early years, he was a simple seaman, but by 1577, as he grew in experience, he had become an explorer of the highest order. He was a stout and courageous sea captain and a clever strategist, as is demonstrated in his many letters to Queen Elizabeth I.

He also made some of the most daring attacks against Spanish privateers in the New World. On a mule train attack in 1573, for example, he and his men captured gold and silver worth more than $20 million.

When Drake returned to England, he was a wealthy and powerful man. He was so famous for his exploits that Queen Elizabeth I classified all the information he gained on his expeditions as her “secrets of the Realm.” She required him to sign a contract that gave him absolute secrecy, on pain of death.

In addition to his explorer’s adventures, Drake was a skilled and experienced navigator and pilot. In fact, the Royal Navy named a new class of commissioned naval officer after him: “Sir Francis Drake, Navigator.” He was a major player in the War of Spanish Succession.

His explorer’s exploits in North America, Mexico and Spain are well known, but he also played a crucial role in the English-Spain war of 1588 and 1590. He was also an ardent supporter of the American Revolution.

He was also a scientist, working in radio astronomy and space science. He designed the first directed interstellar message ever sent deliberately into space from Earth, and he was involved with the plaques used on the Pioneer 10 and 11 and Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft to convey messages to any intelligent extraterrestrial life that might be discovered in the distant future.

In the mid-20th century, Drake served on the board of directors of the SETI Institute. He was also a professor of astronomy at Cornell University, where he helped launch the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. He was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was a co-creator of the Golden Record, which is carried on the Voyager spacecraft.
