Discovery

 

the name of several British expedition ships from the 17th century to the 20th.

(1) A bark (55 tons) of the British East India Company that searched for the Northwest Passage from 1602 to 1616. The ship made its most important ventures under the command of H. Hudson in 1610-11, when Hudson Bay was discovered and explored. T. Button in 1612 and R. Bylot (with his navigator W. Baffin) in 1615 also made important voyages. Bylot and Baffin discovered Baffin Bay in 1616.

(2) A sloop (300 tons) that sailed with J. Cook on his third circumnavigation of the world; in 1776-79 it was under the command of C. Clerke.

(3) A steamship (1,620 tons) that served as a base for two antarctic expeditions, in 1901-04 (commanded by R. F. Scott) and in 1929-31 (with the Australian expedition headed byD. Mawson). Important oceanographic studies were done during the ship’s voyages.

What does it mean when you dream about a discovery?

Discovery has a negative meaning, as in finding out about something that has been concealed, and a positive meaning, as when one makes a new discovery. Dream discoveries in the first sense may simply indicate anxiety, rather than something actually being hidden. Dream discoveries in the second sense may show the dreamer is entering into a new phase of life or a new phase of personal development, such as recovery from a major upheaval.

service discovery

The capability of automatically identifying a hardware or software service in a network such as a scanner, printer, Web server or shared file.
