    One of the European explorers that seemed to have had the most significant contributions to European culture and exploration was Ferdinand Magellan.

    Ferdinand Magellan was a Portuguese sailor and navy man. His crew was able to successfully circumnavigate the globe successfully, even though that was not their original intention. This circumnavigation opened up European exploration to formerly uncharted areas resulting in the Strait of Magellan sea route, Magellanic penguins named after Magellan, celestial bodies named after Magellan due to his supreme navigation prowess, and the exploration of both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
