    The Shovell disaster itself was due to a combination of latitude
    error and mapping error, but the incident provided the impetus for
    the Longitude Prize, or the excuse the proponents of the prize needed
    to push it through to government approval.  So it was important to
    the development of lunars and chronometers.
