I was very honored and surprised to find there is an explorer from my very home town; Dundalk, Ireland!
Thomas Coulter (1793–1843) explored the areas of Mexico and California mostly finding new types of cactus plant!
There's even a tree named after him!

I know, it's not really as exciting as landing on the moon but, hey, I'll take any sort of recognition for a fellow Dundalk person!
