Abstract

In the course of universal history, Mankind has made innumerable efforts to tackle problems and overcome remarkable impediments. One major problem was to find references for accurate navigation. Quite soon, Humanity looked for a way to plan routes and carry out a safe navigation. Astronomy provided the righe means to reach optimal solutions. In this part, I will follow the path that led Mankind to extraordinary achievements in this field. The first chapter gives an historical-literary presentation of navigation and highlights the basic principles of surface navigation and the role played by astronomy in finding the solution to some problems that must also be tackled nowadays. An outline of interstellar aberrational navigation is described in part IV.
