Other reasons ranged from lack of financial resources to an inability to connect with people, according to the report.

The National Museum of Natural History remains temporarily closed. Convinced submerging a telegraph cable in water was impossible, the Western Union funded Perry McDonough Collins and his expedition to build the first overland cross continental telegraph line. In order to put up the line, land surveys were conducted in Canada, Asia, and Alaska. Kennicott and his party of highly qualified naturalists and botanists focused their efforts exploring the flora and fauna of Alaska for the first time; returning home with a total of 5, plant specimens including new species.
Upon arrival, they were stunned to see the flora that permeated the frost-covered ground. Dall observed the landscape in his journal, noting that the soil never completely thawed, and that the roots of all plants grew out of the top soil and could not go any deeper through the frozen layers. Among these herbs and shrubs were also beautiful flowers that grew in abundance at Alaskan trading posts near Sitka.
Dall was amazed to see orchids among the frost bitten shrubs, and noted the white orchid Plantanthera dilata in his journal. While Dall and his team appreciated the beauty of some of these flowers, they were intrigued to discover that native tribes in Alaska found the aroma of orchids and other flowers like Rosa cinnamomea as pungent and rotten. In the winter, Dall, Kennicott and Rothrock separated with teams to explore different areas of Alaska, but each journal account documents the frequent occurrence of the blood root Sanguinaria canadensis growing on river banks.
The blood root would freeze, get buried under snow and ice, and yet miraculously remain living.

Today we think of our data being in the ‘cloud’, but in reality it mostly travels around the world along vast undersea cables. This incredible feat of engineering was first tried in the 19th century, with the laying of telegraph cables that paved the way for modern, instantaneous communication. After a cable was successfully laid across the English Channel, engineers set their sights on a mammoth challenge: the Atlantic Ocean.
In a new transatlantic telegraph cable shrank the world, dramatically changing the way we communicate. Back on dry land, railways were connecting towns and cities faster than ever before, causing a fundamental problem with our traditional ways of keeping time—but telegraph cables offered a solution. By the early 20th century, the instantaneous exchange of information via telegraph cables was changing—and speeding up—the way business was organised.
