So what? The Vikings reached it 500 years before Columbus. So we found out a new fact of history. This wouldnt change anything.

We all know that.
But I think in history, you can only "discover" lands if your on a boat.
If that is the case, Columbus wasn't the first. The Chinese weren't the first and neither were the Vikings.
The Black Africans, Egyptians, discovered America perhaps 3,000 years ago, through sailing the Atlantic Ocean.
