As Magellan and the rest of his crew made it out of Magellan's Strait, they were amazed by what they saw. The Pacific Ocean. It was so beautiful and peaceful to Magellan that he renamed it to "Pacific" after the Latin word, "pacifica," meaning "tranquil," and in March 1521, they entered the port of Guam.
The death of Ferdinand Magellan
Ferdinand Magellan being killed
While Magellan was having good relationships with local tribes, other crews weren't. Magellan was forced to help them because they were his comrades. While in battle, Magellan was killed bye spear and never made it to the Spice Islands. Fortunately, the rest of the crew made it, and returned back to Spain proving the world was round. In my view, this journey was like a "successful failure," much like Apollo XIII. Ferdinand Magellan successfully found a western route to the Spice Islands, and also proved the world was round.
