    The concluding lines of the article are significant:

    Quote:

    "There's a lot of concern that students new to navigation are becoming too dependent on electronic means of navigation," says Clifford, "that they're not looking out the window in front of them, and they're not verifying their position."

    "The U.S. Navy had dropped celestial navigation from their curriculum, but they've reintroduced that now," he says."They understand that you have to have that capability as a back up and to confirm electronic navigation."

    Mariners, even in the 21st century, still need to know what they're seeing if they look up at the stars.

    End quote.
