Interesting facts-Difference Between Explore and Discover

Difference Between Explore and Discover

You can't explore an island before you've discovered it.
You generally won't discover gold or oil unless you explore for it.

Basically, "explore" means to look for something (oil, gold), or look around (island) while "Discover" means to find something - uncover it.

Example: Captain Cook didn't discover Australia, the Dutch discovered it 170 years earlier. But Captain Cook explored its western coasts in great detail.
