As a teenager he apprenticed to a sea-faring family and in 1755 he joined the royal navy. He proved himself an expert navigator and soon after made lieutenant rank. He was chosen by the Royal Society of London to undertake a scientific journey to Tahiti to observe and document the planet Venus transiting the sun. This measurement would help calculate the distance from the earth to the sun.
