One thing that I found challenging was about the earth’s magnetic fields, I have never know how magnetic field could ever change. And during this lab I saw that it did not change once but multiple times throughout the years, I even had problems answering a few lab questions about the magnetic field.

As the book says, this discrepancy made some members of the Columbus fleet gave up on their journey because they thought it
