The raft was named Kon-Tiki after the Inca god Viracocha, for whom Kon-Tiki was said to be an old name. Kon-Tiki is also the name of Heyerdahl's book, the Academy Award-winning 1950 documentary film chronicling his adventures, and the 2012 dramatized feature film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. The book was first published in Norway on 2 November 1948, and sold out in 15 days. The Kon-Tiki Man Thor Heyerdahl - Film Symphony Orchestra, Ragnar Bjerkreim.

Kon-Tiki was the name of a wooden raft used by six Scandinavian scientists, led by Thor Heyerdahl, to make a 101-day journey from South America to the Polynesian Islands. Heyerdahl made a study of the winds and tides in the Pacific, and by simulating conditions as closely as possible to those he theorized the Peruvians encountered, set out on the voyage. Explorer Thor Heyerdahl has died. The film-of the same title, shot by the crew during the journey-won the Academy Award for best documentary film in 1951. It is screened continuously at The Kon-Tiki Museum. Kon-Tiki is the record of an astonishing adventure - a journey of 4,300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean by raft.

He decided to prove his theory by duplicating the Kon-Tiki is the record of an astonishing adventure - a journey of 4,300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean by raft.

Книга норвежского этнографа Тура Хейердала ПУТЕШЕСТВИЕ НА КОН-ТИКИ, посвященная описанию организованного им и проведенного под его руководством путешествия на плоту от Перу до Полинезии. Это путешествие было предпринято с целью доказать возможность заселения островов Полинезии с востока, из Америки. И хотя по признанию самого Хейердала ему удалось доказать лишь мореходные качества бальзовых плотов, значение его экспедиции вышло далеко за пределы поставленной им цели. Эта экспедицияприобрела самостоятельный интерес независимо от решения вопроса о происхождении полинезийцев. Основанная на. Year Published: 1950. 7th Impression. 238 pages. No dust jacket.
