Kon-Tiki is the world’s most famous raft, created by anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl to show that people from South America could have settled the Polynesian islands given the technology of the pre-Columbian era. Heyerdahl and his crew sailed the balsa wood raft 4300 miles across the Pacific and accomplished their mission. His findings were disputed until recent DNA data proved his theory. Next time you wear your Eterna Kontiki, be proud.
