  1. vitus behring

    Vitus Behring, also known as Vitus Jonassen Bering, is not a term but a historical figure. He was a Danish explorer and navy officer who is best known for his two exploratory journeys to the northeastern coast of Asia. These explorations proved that Asia and North America were not connected, leading to the Bering Strait, the Bering Sea, and the Bering Land Bridge to be named after him. He lived from 1681 to 1741 and his work significantly expanded European understanding of the geography of the world.
