christopher columbus' proposal

Columbus discusses with Spanish royalty his proposal to reach Asia by sailing west across the Atlantic Ocean. Columbus estimates his voyage to be 7 weeks long, but the reviewers of his proposal disagree and believe it will take one year. Columbus states that the goals of his voyage are to open a trade route with Asia for economic benefit and to expand the influence of the monarchs, Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castille.
