Panama Canal

Another AnswerThere is another interesting answer. In the days of exploration, there was postulated a short cut. After all, there had to be a way for the water to get from one point to another, so a "Northwest Passage" was thought to exist. This passage would have been a water route that cut through the continent of North America. However it was never found because it did not exist.

Until the Panama Canal was cut, there was no way other than around the Horn of Africa, or the Horn of South America to get from Europe to Asia.

The name of the shortcut from Europe to Asia was called the Northwest Passage. Many explorers searched for it, but it was never found. However, with new technology and the melting of polar ice cap, passing through the area is now possible.

The Arctic Circle passes through the continents of North America, Europe, and Asia, using the commonly-taught 7-continent model.
