"'Astro Nav' seems to be more British.
Probably there is somebody at Vanderbilt, with responsibility for funding this course, who is taken with the idea of wearing an ascot. Probably they took elocution lessons from sombody in Cambridge, in the hopes that it would add 10 points to their IQ."

"To the best of my knowledge, the term 'astro-navigation' is a British term,
but I can also include Canada in that camp, who unlike our rebellious cousins to the south, decided to stay within the warm embrace of the English Monarchy. An no, Canadians do not wear ascots nor do we say 'pip-pip'."
Ahh... two Canadians separated by a common language!
It's all just a reminder that the practice of navigation is cultural as well as scientific.
