Below is the progress of our attempt to digitally circumnavigate the globe, following the path originally taken by the Nao Victoria between 1519 and 1522.

Virtually Nao has successfully digitally circumnavigated the world!

The journey took a total of 9.353 seconds to travel by Internet.
The project took 74 days to acquire the data from volunteers across the globe. That’s 6 393 600 seconds.
The project had help from 12 volunteers.
The volunteers were from 10 different locations, 7 different countries and 5 different continents.
The flow of Internet data crossed all of the continents except for Antarctica. It travelled through 21 different countries, stopping in 35 different locations, often revisiting the same location more than once.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this project possible.
