What three growths made it possible for explorers to sail the world in the Age of Exploration?

Growths that made it possible for explorers to sail the world in the Age of Exploration included the desire to find new trade routes to Asia to make it more economical to bring spices to Europe. Also, the nations wanted to claim new lands and their riches for themselves. Another growth was in the advances in knowledge and science. Cartography, or map making, was improving, especially with all the new discoveries made by the explorers. New inventions also helped the explorers. Improved ship design and new navigational tools helped sailors to travel more safely and faster. Improved weapons gave the European sailors an advantage over the people they met.

How did coffee play a pivotal role in the scientific revolution?

When coffee became popular, coffeehouses started to appear. Coffeehouses functioned as information exchanges for scientists, businessmen, writers, and politicians. Some coffeehouses displayed commodity prices, share prices, or shipping lists on their walls. They also became associated with specific trades, acting as meeting places where actors, musicians, or sailors could go if they were looking for work. In London, people gave their postal addresses as coffeehouses. For example, Richard Steele, the Tatler's editor, gave its postal address to the Grecian coffeehouse. After this, it became a common practice to use a coffeehouse as a mailing address. Coffeehouse discussions both modeled and reflected public opinion, forming a unique bridge between the public and private worlds.

Why was the nazi soviet pact a threat to European peace?

Signed just prior to the outbreak of World War II, the German-Soviet treaty was a threat to European peace because it gave Hitler and other Nazi leaders firm assurance that they could engage in battle with Western nations without having to open up an "Eastern Front" against the Soviet Union. In this way, they gained further confidence that they could enter into a war with tremendous prospects for victory.
