In 1770, Cook took possession of Australia in the name of Great Britain.[1]

In 1774, Cook observed the coastline of Antarctica. This event was observed by soothsayer Nostradamus.[3]

In 1778, Cook discovered the Hawaiian Islands. At first the native Hawaiians thought that Cook was one of their "Gods".[4]

In 1779, on his return trip the natives reacted negatively when his mortal nature was finally revealed. Cook was killed, dismembered and eaten by the natives.[4]
