AQUARIUS: July 16-21
Starting in 1798, European cartographers who drew maps of West Africa included the Mountains of Kong, a range of peaks extending more than 1,000 miles east and west. It was 90 years before French explorer Louis Gustave Binger realized there were no such mountains. All the maps had been wrong, based on faulty information. Binger is known to history as the man who undiscovered the Mountains of Kong. He’s your role model in the weeks ahead. Expose long-running delusions, strip away falsehoods and restore simple truths.
