Strait of Magellan
Stopped at port San Julian
Led by few captains, crew rebelled against legal authority
Magellan solved by killing one captain, leaving other one behind
Searched for strait along South American Coast
Found strait at southern tip (Now called the "Strait of Magellan")
About a month of travel through the Strait of Magellan
November 1520: Came upon a huge ocean
Magellan named it Mar Pacifico (The Pacific Ocean)
Took 3 months to cross Pacific
Magellan recorded:
"we were three month and twenty days without refreshments from any kind of fresh food...We drank yellow water already many days putrid...and often we ate sawdust. Rats were sold for half a ducat apiece, and even so we could not always get them."
After crossing Pacific, arrived at Guam
Sailed from there to island Cebu
Befriended the locals

Was able to trade, stocked up cloves
Made way back to Spain
September 6, 1522: One ship returned to Spain, the Victoria
Had spices and only 18 original men

Shot with poison arrow, finished off with spear, died April 27, 1521
Remaining ships reached Moluccas
European geographic knowledge expanded
Discovered a strait through South America
Discovered a massive ocean
Found world was much larger than previously thought

Magellan never actually circumnavigated the globe, he died before he got the chance.

Out of fear one crew forced captain to return to Spain
3 out of 5 ships remaining (one previously destroyed in a storm)

Exploration impacted the world greatly. Not only did it bring people out of the Dark Ages, exploration also opened up a path for exchanges. Whether it was exchanges in goods, culture, diseases, crops, or animals, without the Age of Exploration, life wouldn't be the same.
